Dyshidrotic eczema: This is a common hand and or foot dermatosis that may be stress related. It is usually recurrent. For acute attacks, try epsom salt soaks and apply a topical steroid cream. If the rash is really bad, see a dermatologist who may prescribe oral Prednisone and a strong topical steroid.
