Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi, Pradip
Thanks for your query.
You seem to have developed pompholyx. It is a form of hand eczema. Pompholyx is aggravated by contact with irritants such as water, detergents and solvents.
You may do cold compresses and apply moisturizers .
Use a steroid cream twice a day by prescription.

Contact with irritants must be avoided as much as possible and protective gloves worn to prevent additional irritant contact dermatitis. Plastic gloves are preferable to latex ones.

Hope this helps you.
