Brief Answer:
Recurrent Focal palmar peeling

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to healthcare magic forum.

I have gone through your history and seen the good picture attached.

I would consider the diagnosis of a condition called as " Recurrent focal palmar peeling". It is a skin disorder in which, as the name explains, the skin on the palms peels off without any cause. It is more common in individuals who have a tendency for allergies like childhood asthma or nasal allergies.

You could use a moisturizer containing urea and lactic acid as the key ingredients 3-4 times a day.

The condition will resolve spontaneously within 10-15 days.

Hope this helps you.

Take care.

Dr. Johny Chacko
