What causes peeling off of skin on palms?
Please provide more history
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I understand from your query that you are having peeling off of your skin on your palms.
With your history in mind, I would consider the possibilities of entities called " Recurrent focal palmar peeling", " Pompholyx" , " Lichen planus " and " Tinea manum".
Could you provide me a few more details so that I can assess better?
1. Is this problem recurrent or is this the 1 st time you have had this? By recurrent, I mean to say that the hands become completely normal and starts peeling again after a few months. If recurrent, is it seasonal?
2. Do you handle any chemicals/ caustics/ do gardening?
3. Does it itch?
4. Do you notice any blisters before the peeling begins?
5. Do you have any peeling on your soles as well?
You have a feature to upload the images by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your query better. You can also send the image as attachment to YYYY@YYYY , with the subject as 'Attn: Dr. Johny Chacko'.
Please revert back with the additional history and clear clinical pictures.
