Good evening, thanks for the question

Pompholyx or also called dishidrotic eczema is a type of eczema with symptoms of reddish nodules filled with water that appears on the fingers, palms, and sometimes on the palms. Other symptoms include heartburn and itching of the skin on the palms and fingers. In severe cases these nodules can enlarge and even spread to the back of the hands, arms, to the feet.

This condition is classified as recurring because of its chronic nature, which is triggered by the following:

1. Fungal infections of the skin
2. Contact with irritants
3. Psychic stress
4. Sweating

The main treatment in this condition is the same as in allergic eczema, which includes giving emollients or moisturizers to the skin, and steroid creams to overcome the excessive inflammation of the skin reaction. Oral antihistamines are given to reduce itching and antibiotics can be given if accompanied also by infection. However, if symptoms persist or recurrence becomes frequent with the above treatment, other treatment options include:

1. Phototherapy
2. Immunosuppressant drugs
3. Oral steroids or creams with very strong potential

Giving the above therapy needs to be based on clear medical indications based on previous doctor's examination. Therefore, it is better to do further consultation with a dermatologist to get adequate treatment in the future.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
