Patient Question

Hello Doctor

 

A 7-year-old girl has developed small blisters on the inner skin of her hand, accompanied by itching on both sides. This condition is localized only to her hands, specifically the inner side. Concerns arise about what might be causing this and how to alleviate her discomfort. There haven't been any recent changes in her environment or activities, and she has no known allergies or preexisting skin conditions.

Hello 

Thank you for reaching out to Dr.Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Understanding the Condition:

 1. This is likely a chronic (long-term) skin condition known as eczema or atopic dermatitis. It commonly presents with small blisters and dry, itchy skin, particularly in areas like the hands.

 

Reassurance:

 1. There's no immediate cause for alarm. Eczema is a manageable condition, but it does require proper diagnosis and treatment to alleviate symptoms and prevent flare-ups.

 

Relief Measures:

 1. Keep the hands clean and dry.

 2. Avoid potential irritants.

 3. Apply gentle, fragrance-free moisturizers.

 4. Consider over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream under medical guidance.

 5. Consultation: Seek advice from a pediatrician or dermatologist for personalized treatment recommendations, considering the persistent nature of her symptoms.

 6. Final Note: Prioritize the patient's comfort and seek professional guidance for optimal care.

 

Thanks
