In brief: Peeling, dry palms

are often caused by contact dermatitis--contact with harsh detergents, soaps and lotions that contain perfume; cold, dry air; eczema or fungal infections.
Use fresh water instead of soap; apply calamine lotion. A low dose OTC steroid cream can be applied.Symptoms worsened by dry skin: use good quality moisturizer during daytime.Consider repair glycolic acid creams at night, maybe with cotton gloves
