General Dry Hands / Eczema Information
Maintaining healthy, supple skin requires a delicate balance of moisture and oil. Moisture is necessary to keep the skin hydrated, while the presence of oil serves as a barrier to prevent moisture from escaping. If either of these components is limited, dry hands can result. Dry skin tends to appear on areas of the body that are most exposed to the elements, so hands are very susceptible to this common, and sometimes painful, condition.

Eczema is a group of chronic skin disorders that affect the hands, face, neck and scalp. Eczema is more severe than ordinary dry skin because it includes itching, small oozing blisters and areas of thickened, scaly skin..

Possible Causes of Dry Hands / Eczema
Dry skin is primarily a genetic condition, but it may be caused or worsened in the hands by poor diet and environmental factors, such as exposure to sun, cold, wind and cosmetics, or by extended contact with harsh detergents.

Most people who have eczema have sensitive immune systems and a family history of allergic conditions. This causes sufferers to react more severely to harmful irritants and allergens. Hypochlorhydria (low levels of hydrocloric acid in the stomach), candidiasis (too much yeast in the system), food allergies and a genetically-based weakness in the enzyme delta-6-desaturase can also cause eczema.

Possible Symptoms of Dry Hands / Eczema
Dry hands tend to be dull-looking, flaky, scaly and cracked, and it easily develops fine lines and wrinkles. The skin often feels tight and dry, especially after immersion in water unless immediately covered with moisturizer or skin cream. Chapping may also occur.

The most annoying symptom of eczema is constant, uncontrollable itching. Eczema on the hands looks like scaly, thickened areas of skin that can become red and fissured. Tiny blisters that weep, rupture and crust over are also common with eczema.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Dry Hands / Eczema
Dry Hands
Combat dry hands by drinking at least two quarts of water every day and eating a balanced diet (with plenty of vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds and nuts). Avoid fried foods, animal fats, soft drinks, sugar, chocolate, snack chips, alcohol and caffeine, because these items tend to rob the body of necessary fluids and minerals.

Do not use harsh soaps or very hot water when bathing, showering or washing dishes. Use a loofah sponge twice a week on the affected areas to increase circulation and remove dead skin. Moisturize your hands after cleansing and several other times during the day to avoid dryness. Use calendula cream or oil with comfrey, vitamin E oil and aloe vera on the fingers at bedtime, then wear plastic or cotton gloves overnight. This intensive therapy will help cure dryness while you sleep.

Smoking is very harmful to the skin, so do not smoke and avoid second-hand smoke whenever possible. The sun is responsible for the majority of damage done to the skin, so stay out of the sun and use sunscreen whenever appropriate.

Eczema
Because food allergies are a major cause of eczema, it is important to consult with a doctor to determine if allergies are a factor. Once an allergen is identified, avoiding that trigger will significantly improve the condition. Some eczema suffers see a drastic improvement in their condition by avoiding coffee products. The allergen identified in studies linking coffee drinking to eczema found the illness was triggered by a sensitivity to coffee, not to caffeine.
