Itchy, hard spots on palm, blister like bumps, used hydrocortisone Cream. Allergy or eczema?

My daughter had hard spots on her meaty part of her palm near her wrist . And complained of itchiness. The hard spots are gone. But now she has blister like bumps in the middle of her palm which is very itchy for her. I just lathered on some hydrocortisone Creme 1%. To calm it down. Could this be an allergy of some sort or beginning sign of eczema?

Reading your query, irritant contact dermatitis is a likely possibility if this is restriced to both hands and wrists.

Patch tests (usually read at 48hours and 72 hours) to a variety of chemicals (or if there is a clear trigger like rubber) can be done by Dermatologists and the trigger may be identified.
Low potent steroids with antihistamines are useful but stronger steroids can be used if required.
I hope this was useful.
