Allergies: The cause of dyshidrotic eczema is unknown. However, it can be associated with a skin disorder called atopic dermatitis, and seasonal allergies. You may help prevent the condition by managing allergies, stress and avoiding exposure to metal salts, such as cobalt and nickel. You can apply OTC topical corticosteroids, see a Dr for phototherapy, botox injections and immune suppressing ointment.
