Location: Eczema is a broad term used to describe a group of conditions characterized by dry sensitive skin. It include atopic dermatitis (usually starting in childhood associated with allergies), xerotic eczema (winter's itch), and others. Dyshidrotic eczema specifically denotes eczema on the hands. Patients have tiny tapioca pudding like blisters on the sides of the palms and fingers.
