Dry patches of skin on palms and feet. What is this?

Hi. I have small circular patches of skin on my palms and feet that are skin color except around the edges where they are white and look dry. The centers of the circle are open, like a blister without pus that has popped. I m not sure that what is on my hands is the same thing that is on my feet. The circles on my feet are slightly deeper, smaller, and far greater in number. If you know what this might be please let me know! Thank you.

hi, you could be having a type of eczema known as pompholyx where one gets multiple tiny itchy deep seated fluid filled blisters that at times lead to peeling of skin. These are usually seasonal and occurs over palm and soles and also along side of fingers. You can apply a steroidal cream and a good moisturising cream. however, remember the correct diagnosis can only be made after proper analysis of your skin. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
