Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints about the appearance of small itchy spots on the palms and feet can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative substances [detergents, soap, chemicals, etc.], not related to the process of immune sensitization / immune formation so that symptoms can immediately arise at first exposure to irritative substances)
Allergic contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with allergens [rubber, metal, plant pollen], related to the process of immune formation so that symptoms generally arise after repeated exposure to allergenic substances)
Atopic dermatitis (chronic and recurrent skin inflammation, associated with a history of atopy [allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis] in patients / families)
Dishidrosis (also known as chronic vesicobullous hand dermatitis), the exact cause is rarely identified, associated with stress, allergies, contact with certain metals, sweaty or wet hands / feet, humid and warm weather, and the use of drugs that weaken the immune system; symptoms in the form of pimples or fluid-filled, small lumps, on the outer edges of fingers, palms, and feet, accompanied by itching, generally disappear on their own within 2-3 weeks)
Scabies (Sarcoptes scabiei parasitic infection, symptoms of a skin rash, especially in the area between the fingers, around the genitals, buttocks, armpit folding, itching especially at night, occur in a group of people who live together like a dormitory or family)
Tinea pedis et manum (commonly known as water fleas, is a disease caused by a dermatophyte fungal infection between the toes and hands, symptoms of peeling, scaly skin, until it can blister that feels itchy)
Complaints about skin rashes require a direct examination by a doctor to determine the cause. If the complaint is felt to be so disturbing, you are advised to consult directly with a doctor or dermatologist and in order to be able to evaluate and handle appropriately. If an indication is found, the doctor will probably do a supporting examination such as a skin chop test or skin scraping, then the examination under a microscope. Later the doctor may prescribe creams / ointments to be smeared, and oral medication to reduce complaints of itching.
As a suggestion, you are advised to take the following simple steps:
Keep between your toes and hands to keep them dry and not damp from sweat
Do not use clothes / towels together with others
Wash hands thoroughly after contact with chemicals, detergents, or other irritating substances
If you use gloves or socks frequently, avoid reuse without washing them first
