Why Does The Skin On My Hands Peel
Possible eczema: Dry, peeling skin on the hands is common and may be a form of eczema, allergy or keratolysis exfoliativa. Sometimes this can occur after an illness, infection or exposure to harsh soap or chemical. I recommend using a gentle cleanser to wash the hands and applying a good moisturizer 3-4 times per day. If this is not helping after a few days, a visit to the dermatologist is recommended.
Unusual: It's an unusual and not commonly seen clinical manifestation of mono but it can occur with the disease. It's best to try to avoid peeling it (although I know that's hard!) and let it be. It won't hurt you any more than the other symptoms you may have, other than making sure you protect your spleen at all costs. I wish you a speedy recovery!See 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Was the drug rash on your hands?

Hand Eczema: Eczema, also called dermatitis. 'hand dermatitis' is a broad term for any type of eczema that develops on the hands. Hand dermatitis often has unique causes, commonly job-related and can require specific testing and treatments. Treatment is with emollients like cerave cream which is otc and prescription strength cortisone like vanos.
More info.: Would need more information on other areas of body affected, parts of hands affected, and. A dermatologist or allergist can help, but first consider the frequency of hand washing, and whether you've changed soaps/detergents/lotions recently. You may have an allergy, or simply dry skin. See your primary physician for evaluation, as rarely some types of peeling can be signs of dangerous condition
None that I know of.: But I recommend you see a dermatologist.
Hand Dermatitis: An estimated 2% to 10% of the general population is affected by hand dermatitis. 20% to 35% of all dermatitis affects the hands. 9% to 35% of all occupational disease and up to 80% or more of all occupational contact dermatitis. Five occupations were responsible for more than 60% of these cases: 1Housekeeper, 2-Bricklayer, 3-Worker in metallurgic or mechanical industry, 4-Hairdresser, 5health care
Can be: It could also just be dry skin. The fact it is excessive kind of implies to me that you are unable to control the condition to your liking. Therefore, I wold recommend a visit to the dermatologist who likely will be able to help solve your problem or keep it at bay and minimize it. (sometimes if hands exposed to excess water like when doing dishes or harsh checmical this can also occur.).
Dry feet and hands: One hand and two foot syndrome is fungus that results in dryness of both soles and usually the dominant hand palm. Treatment with amlactin cream and Lamisil (terbinafine) cream is often effective. Drynesss can be treated with amlactin cream. Allergy is possible, but less likely to affect both hands and feet.
Had a nonspecific mass removed from the top of my hand. Now hand is hot and skin is peeling. What's w/the peeling?
Possibly Infected: It sounds like you might have a wound infection. I would make sure to contact the office that removed the mass and inform them of your concern.
I had a nonspecific mass removed from the top of my hand. Now a month later the skin is peeling off the top of my hand. What's up w/ that?
Palm skin is thick: The skin of the palm and of the bottom of the foot is quite thick. The outer layer, called the stratum corneum, is thickest in these areas. These layers are not even alive, and therefore after surgery don't "heal" the way we expect them to. They slough off like a blister and the skin underneath rises to takes its place.See 2 more doctor answers
