Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hands that are peeling, swollen, mottled, watery, and itchy may indicate a fungal infection, or in the medical realm it is known as tinea manum. This disease is caused by dermatophyte fungi, which are a group of fungi that attack and grow on keratin or dead skin cells on human skin. This disease can be transmitted very easily through direct and indirect contact with sufferers. It can also be transmitted through infected animals (dogs, yellow, cattle) or soil. This condition is more prone to occur in those whose daily activities are related to the production of excessive sweat or wet hands.
In addition to tinea manum, your complaints may also arise due to other factors, for example:
Allergic contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with allergens) Cutaneous Candidiasis (Candida sp. Yeast infection) Psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation associated with autoimmune disorders, which causes thickened, peeling, scaly, itchy, and sore skin) Scabies ( scabies, Sarcoptes scabeii mite infection) Impetigo (bacterial infection) Miliaria (prickly heat, inflammation of the sweat glands) Irritant contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with irritants) Pompholyx (dyshidrosis of the hands or feet), etc. You should visit in person doctor at the nearest health facility, so that you can evaluate what caused your complaint so far. Because, if not handled properly, this can certainly affect your work activities, and it is not impossible to cause transmission to your family members or other close relatives. If it is true that the cause is fungus, the doctor can prescribe anti-fungal drugs and several other therapies according to your complaint.
Wash your hands diligently using antiseptic soap, but do not rub too much Do not hold hands excessively Make sure your hands are always dry and clean. Stay away from contact between hands with allergens or irritants.
