Dermatologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query,

You might have developed an endogenous hand eczema.

It is called as pompholyx.

Please get you blood eosinophil count done.

This will help in knowing the exact cause.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
