Friend though he had eczema on hand but it got biopsied and now he has to take pills for 5 years and can't have sex? What is this condition called?

STD?: Something may have been garbled in communication from doctor to patient to you. "can't have sex" suggests a sexually transmitted disease, such as syphilis (which can cause a rash on hands), but - "pills for 5 years"? Herpes can occur on hands but wouldn't look like eczema. All we can do is speculate without more information. ...Read more

I suggest that you reduce the frequency of hand washing while avoided scented or antibacterial soap. Wear a non-latex glove whenever possible and apply moisturizer on your hands whenever feasible. Nothing works until the causative agent is removed. ...Read more
