Eczema: Flaky itchy skin is often due to overgrowth of skin cells and is often called eczema. There are genetic and environmental factors (such as temperature, humidity, chemical stress, picking at it, etc) and people with the tendency often go through periods of clear skin and periods of symptoms. Sometimes opportunistic fungi or bacteria make things worse. Your practitioner may recommend treatment.
Often, palms/hands & soles/feet itch after shower (sometimes maddeningly)No new soaps, meds, etc. Skin isn't dry. Hydroxyzine doesn't help. What causes this?
Dyshydrosis: Evaporation of water from skin of palms and feet results in comparative dryness compared to environment. This causes loss of energy from the surface and irritation of nerves. Application of Vaseline ointment generously before and after bath may provide relief.
I have a rash on the palms of my hands for about 9 months now. It feels like something eating my skin and leaves them cracked sore and dry.?
Dermatologist helps: Dry, cracked skin on the palms can be eczema or an allergy to something (gloves, tools, creams, etc.), plus maybe yeast or fungus growth in addition to eczema. The over-the-counter Hydrocortisone is usually not strong enough for palm eczema, since the palm is thicker skin. A patient can see a primary care doctor for treatment, though the doctor may the patient refer to a dermatologist.

Eczema or allergy: Eczema is a dry skin condition that can occur anywhere on the body but especially the hands from overwashing. Use protective gloves when doing housework and avoid using drying soaps. Use moisturizing soaps without fragrance such as aveeno, (oatmeal) cetaphil, cerave, dove, neutrogena. Moisturize with creams frequently especially after bathing, showering and washing hands. Vaseline and aquaphor are good.

See your doctor: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.
Protect: Avoid things that make you break out, soaps & wetness. Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot! Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.See 1 more doctor answer
Could be eczema: If it's red and flaky, it could be eczema. Eczema is characterized by dry, itchy, flaky skin - typically found in patches, often on the arms (at bend of elbow) or behind knees, but can also be found on the face, hands or feet - anywhere that is exposed to irritants like soaps or other chemicals. Other reasons for the dry area could be fungal infection, psoriasis, or other irritation in that area.
Eczema: There are a few considerations, but eczema would be one that is fairly common. Dry skin itself is also common and can sometimes cause dry patches. Try using a non-perfumed cream or ointment right after showering while the skin is still damp, as well as 2-3 other times a day. If still a problem he should see his doctor.
Moisturize: There are many reasons for patches of dry and dark skin on your hands - it could be just dry skin that is darkened by the sun, it could be atopic dermatitis (which is just irritated skin from being so dry), it could even be a mild fungal irritation. First thing to try is gentle moisturizers and sunscreen!
