Dermatologist 's  Response

this condition is called pompholyx.

the treatment would be application of steroid cream like mometasone furoate 0.1% once a day for 10 days over the palms and

oral antihistaminic tablet like tab. loratidine 5 mg once a day will help you out with the itching.

in case there is any pus filled lesion, then it is infected, a topical antibiotic cream i.e fucidin will be effective.

in case you sweat a lot over your palms that will have to be taken care of as well.
please feel free to ask me in case you have any queries.
