Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.
It seems that you are suffering from dyshidrotic eczema. In such cases, I usually advice my patients to put lots of moisturisers over body preferably over semi wet body.
In severe cases, moderate potency topical steroids are also advised.
I will advice you to visit your dermatologist for proper examination.
You may discuss this with your treating doctor.
I find this answer helpful
