Dry skin on your hands can be caused by various causes. From the situation your friend is experiencing, the right palm feels dry, cracked, and sore for more than 4 years maybe it can be caused by a yeast infection with a bacterial infection.
Fungal infections can occur in various places on the body, such as the feet, body, and palms. Yeast infection can cause symptoms such as intense itching with sweating, a red rash, and fine peeling skin. If you keep scratching the itchy area, it can cause a bacterial infection. Bacterial infection can cause a discharge of pus, feel sore, and possibly cause a fever.
But usually, skin diseases such as fungal infections and bacterial infections do not last long. If it lasts more than 4 years then it may be accompanied by other diseases that prevent healing such as diabetes mellitus, HIV / AIDS, certain tumors. In addition, lifestyle and cleanliness are also important for the healing process. It is recommended that during the healing process do not get exposed to clothes / dish soap, keep the hands too wet and not too dry, compress with warm water, do not scratch the palms of the hands.
But besides that, the condition that your friend is experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
allergic irritant dermatitis with secondary infection with scabies psoriasis, therefore, it is recommended that your friend consult a skin specialist (SPKK) directly so that the doctor can check your friend's condition directly. And it is important for your friend to carry out routine control to the doctor so that the doctor can monitor the progress of your friend's condition.
