I have a scaling skin which only occurs on both hand palm and foot palm...It also does not cause me any harm or whatsoever. Is this normal?

If it persists are recurs, you should probably see a dermatologist. ...Read more

If your symptoms were mild, it might be OK to try an over-the-counter yeast cream like Monistat and others. But other conditions are possible and these symptoms sound pretty severe. I would recommend you see your doctor, both for diagnosis and to make sure there's not an underlying health problem, like diabetes. ...Read more
