I have moisture, or dried moisture, inside my left wantonly, especially after waking from sleeping on my left side. . And it s very tender almost always. Sometimes I am able to get a good sized piece of ....dried skin?, with my finger nail, when there s no moisture ... any given day. What s that about?

I ve always had very pronounced creases and wrinkles on my hands - especially palms, and also on the soles of my feet. My skin is also generally dry, however can be relieved by a good moisturizer. Is there a name, though, for the creased palms/soles? I ve had this condition since birth. My sister has it as well.

Hello, I had 2 small patches of dry skin, one on each palm, which gradually grew to encompass most of the area of the palm. Whilst the skin on forms a white border which is slightly peeling in apprearnce, the skin in the centre of the palm has grown in quite tight and ever so slightly leathery. I was thinking this could possibly be a form of eczema, but your judgement would be greatly appteciated. Thank-you very much for your help.

I am having trouble with my feet and hands. extremely dry skin - eczema-like on my hand, and skin is cracking leaving deep knife-like splits in heels, ball of foot, and fingers. My entire right foot is swollen and it is extremely painful to put any weight on it at all. I am afraid the foot is infected. Should I go to emergency clinic? My efforts with Neosporin & wrapping are not working & this has been ongoing for about 2 weeks now.
