Dyshidrotic Eczema: Topical corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment. Usually we use class I steroids ( Clobetasol) and class II (fluocinonide 0.05%) or III steroids (triamcinolone 0.5%). Ointments penetrate the skin better than creams. the choice of medication always depends on severity. there are other options for resistant cases including but not lemited to : UV light, Botulinum toxins, Immunosuppressants.
