Hand Skin Peeling And Rough After Washing?
….rnWant to ask, I finished washing with my hands and the skin on my hands peeled off…then the scar on my elbow was rough, it took a long time to peel off so it looks like a sore, I’m afraid it’s a skin disease, is it dangerous? Is there a cure, so that the skin color is normal again?rnThank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. It's normal to have peeling skin on your hands, especially if you have a history of frequent friction and chemical cleaning. This should improve if you reduce contact with the chemical by washing with gloves, or temporarily avoiding rubbing your hands together.
However, if the condition does not improve, it is possible that the peeling of the skin is caused by a disease condition. Among others are:
Immune system disorders Psoriasis Worm infections Fungal and bacterial infections Contact dermatitis Scarlet fever
And there's much more. Our advice, if you are in doubt, consult a dermatologist for further examination and treatment by an expert.
