dyshidrotic eczema

My dad gets these blisters on his hands during winter from many years. He went to dermatologist and it would get better and would return in next winter. Whereas, then he took homeopathic med for some time and he did not get any for few winters. Then last year he moved to USA. Now he is suffering from same problem again and its been worse than ever. Its all over his palms as well and doctors here say there is no cure. It has been getting worse (4 months and still ongoing) with pain as well. He is applying steroid creams but its not improving at all. The skin is itchy, have blisters and oozing pus. He also has mild diabetes so he takes melatonin pills once a day. He is 61 and this problem started in his 30s. Please help!

Hi – I’ve created this account to publish my experience with Pompholyx also known as dyshidrotic eczema or hand eczema which has the symptoms of small itchy fluid filled blisters on your hands (and sometimes feet). I’ve had it on my hands since I was in junior high school on occasion (I’m nearly 60 years old now) and it always went away after a short time. Forward 40 years… my pompholox got worse, staying longer and worse breakouts. Every morning a new set of blisters. Every evening my hands throbbing and burning. I had zero eczema problems on any other part of my body. The past year (save the last two weeks) was pure hell. I canceled my vacations to warm places because my hands were so bad. I also play guitar and had upped my practice time to over an hour a day the past couple of years (steel guitar strings are nickel coated – play with cotton gloves to see how much sloughs off the strings). My fingers didn’t get “contact dermatitis” from playing so I had no connection to nickel being a problem for me. I am going to now experiment to see if nickel from guitar strings causes blisters on my hands through absorption through the skin.

I’ve been down the road of doctors, dermatologists, elimination diets, leaky gut diet, candida diet, anti-fungal course of medication, and thank goodness after a year of horrible “hamburger hands”, the problem turned out to be too much NICKEL in my diet! Not an allergy, just too much nickel.

I was eating a rather healthy diet to address what I thought was a candida overgrowth - Nuts, sunflower seeds, green peas, avocados, whole grains, brown rice, spinach, beans, leeks, green leafy vegetables, bean sprouts, dark chocolate,… the problem? All of these have HIGH NICKEL content.

The biggest clue came when I noticed that the backs of my hands began to develop the blisters after wearing cotton gloves (my hands were really bad) and using a favorite cocoa butter formula cream on my hands several times a day covering it with gloves – it contained cocoa extract, cocoa seed oil, and sunflower seed oil (all high in nickel!). The red bumpy rash ended at my wrists. The last 3 weeks I did notice the red bumpy rash migrating to my forearms where I began to have small red itchy patches as well, but those have also subsided.

I stopped eating all the high nickel content foods and after a week and a half, I’ve had three days with no new blisters! My hands are nearly back to normal.

The human body is very complex. It could be any number of things that (my theory) the body tries to eliminate through the hands . Why the hands? Never had a problem anywhere else on my body.

Try a Low Nickel Diet! There are a few resources out there that explain it well, as a short summary:

Nickel is accumulated in the husks or shells of seeds and nuts. e.g. Wheat when “polished” loses most of the nickel content. White flour is okay, whole wheat flower is not. Peeling root vegetables significantly reduces nickel content...

Search the Internet for “nickel allergy sensitivity” to get a (surprising) list of high nickel foods and try avoiding those or minimizing them. It’s working for me!
