Dyshidrosis: what it looks like and what are the remedies

With this article we intend to offer some useful information to recognize dyshidrosis, as well as a series of tips to be followed carefully to prevent and combat this annoying skin disorder.

The simple precautions that we propose, if applied constantly, will allow you to see excellent results within a short time and to regain skin health without any need to take drugs.

Even if the skin of the hands is very compromised, presenting deep lesions, with our advice you can avoid using chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Not only that: this can be considered an excellent basis for prevention and remedy in the case of various skin problems: not only dyshidrosis, but also dermatitis, eczema and irritation of various origins.

What is dyshidrosis and how does it manifest itself

Dyshidrosis, or dyshidrosis eczema, is an inflammatory disease of the skin, manifested by the formation of blisters and blisters, mainly on the palms of the hands, but sometimes also between the fingers and on the soles of the feet. By rupturing, the blisters cause lesions and even rather deep cuts, destroying the surface of the skin and leaving the tissues defenseless.

Dyshidrosis can appear suddenly, with acute symptoms that then tend to resolve, or appear as a chronic phenomenon, which usually reappears with a seasonal frequency or after contact with certain substances.

The causes of dyshidrosis are mainly, some relevant risk factors are stress and exposure to irritants or metal materials.

Remedies for dyshidrosis and tips to protect the skin

It is important to keep in mind that, in the daily routine of skin care and beauty, hands must never see water! Humidity is the number one enemy of the delicate skin ecosystem, as it tends to make it even drier and dehydrated.

These are therefore the rules to follow:

1. Do not wash your hands too frequently but only sometimes, and in case of need;

2. Use only very delicate cleansing products, based on simple and natural ingredients (such as Calmiderma and Psoriskin). Liquid and solid soaps and soaps in general should be avoided, even when the skin does not present problems: in the INCI of these products you will always find Sodium Hydroxide, after oils and water. In another article we will deepen the theme of natural soaps.

3. Never use detergents in which SLES / SLS / PEG / Propylen Glycol / Sodium Chloride and other unhealthy and aggressive ingredients appear, which tend to damage the natural protective layer even in the case of healthy skin.

4. Using a cleansing oil is the best solution, both for the hands and for the whole body, especially during the shower, where the hands are used. But be careful! The cleansing oil must be a REAL oil, whose formula is totally free of water.

When reading the INCI of a product of this type, only the oils must be listed, as well as surfactants, emulsifiers and possibly preservatives. The cleansing oil is not aggressive towards the skin's natural hydrolipidic barrier and creates a protective film, ideal for very dry skin: using it regularly, your hands will always remain well hydrated and the skin will remain smooth, soft and well nourished.

5. After each wash, we recommend that you dry your hands carefully immediately, using a soft sponge and without rubbing, even in case of itching, but simply by patting the skin, to keep it soft and not irritate it.

6. Those who tend to have their hands always sweaty, should dry them frequently, dabbing them with a paper towel. If this is not possible, for example while driving a car or using machines and tools, we recommend wearing natural cotton gloves, which will absorb sweat while keeping your hands fresh and dry at all times.

7. During cooking preparations, when cleaning fish, vegetables, fruit or handling salt and other irritating ingredients, it is important to always protect your hands with a suitable pair of gloves.

Always use protective gloves

If your hands are already in poor condition, presenting deep lesions, blisters and blisters, with large areas where the surface layer of the skin is missing, it is essential to always wear protective gloves, avoiding any contact with water, detergents and products. chemists.

Whether for housework, washing dishes or shampooing, we recommend the use of protective cotton gloves worn under the classic waterproof rubber gloves.

Strictly avoid the use of sanitizing gels and alcohol

NEVER SANITIZE YOUR HANDS. The use of alcohol-based sanitizing and disinfectant products is absolutely to be avoided. The skin is protected by a specific cutaneous microbiota, or by natural bacterial colonies that represent a real barrier against infections and diseases.

The presence of eczema already means a reduction in the microbiota, and the use of alcohol and disinfectants is equivalent to completely destroying the skin's natural bacterial protection.

Avoid resorting to cortisone creams for itching

In case of itchy hands, it is important to avoid scratching and rubbing them, if the sensation is very intense and annoying, the best solution is to apply an ice pack.

ABSOLUTELY AVOID THE USE OF CORTISON CREAMS. Cortisone-based creams, often recommended to remove itching, actually make the lesions worse and make the skin even more fragile, aggravating the situation.

To reduce the risk of deeper lesions becoming infected, an antibiotic cream may be indicated, to be applied only where the skin has cuts or blisters, and not all over the hand. In most cases, however, there is no need to take oral antibiotics, which are often prescribed by dermatologists even in the absence of bacterial infection.

Moisturize the skin deeply with a suitable cream

In the presence of dyshidrosis, on the other hand, it is of fundamental importance to think about proper and deep hydration of the skin, which in these conditions needs a much more energetic nourishing action.

Water-based creams are not recommended in the presence of acute eczema, as water can greatly accentuate the itching. It is essential to use only fat-based creams or specific oils (such as that of the Calmiderma line), which offer a feeling of relief, relieve itching, regenerate the tissues and perform a nourishing action, rebalancing the hydrolipidic balance of the tissues. This result is made possible by the presence of fats, which create a protective film and prevent the skin's moisture from dispersing.

We recommend applying a fat-based nourishing cream several times a day, and in particular before sleeping, wearing cotton gloves to avoid grease stains on sheets and linen.

Avoid contact with metallic materials

Another important element to consider is contact with metals. To protect irritated and dehydrated skin, we recommend never touching surfaces, cutlery and other metal objects before wearing protective cotton gloves.

In addition, until the skin is completely healed and free of lesions, the use of watches, jewelry and other accessories made of metal materials and alloys that could cause allergy should be avoided.

The causes of dyshidrosis: heavy metal intoxication

Here we address the fundamental point: what are the causes of dyshidrosis. Dyshidrotic eczema is essentially the symptomatic manifestation of heavy metal intoxication, and in particular nickel. But what is meant by heavy metal poisoning?

Heavy metal poisoning occurs when you come into contact with some particularly toxic metals, including mercury and lead, but also gold, silver, aluminum, nickel, barium and many others.

It is not uncommon for these metals to be present in water, soil, air, even in some drugs and food products, as well as in many commonly used objects, which often come into contact with the skin.

This means that, although serious metal poisoning is related to extraordinary events, chronic intoxication can still occur simply due to the use of metal objects, with more or less significant consequences also in relation to the organism's personal sensitivity.

Cases of severe metal intoxication can cause significant and even irreversible damage to the vital functions of the organism, however, even without witnessing a serious form of intoxication, it is not uncommon that proximity and contact with some metals are responsible for different forms allergy. Nickel is one of those metals that most frequently causes allergic reactions, especially in the skin.

Our organism, of course only if completely healthy, has a perfect physiological system of detoxification, capable of eliminating metals and any other type of toxin.

Today, however, we must deal with very strong pollution and with a lifestyle and diet that is poorly oriented towards health, to the point that being completely healthy has become practically impossible.

This amplifies the problem of intoxication and makes the physiological processes of purification slow and difficult, due to a deficit of natural microelements on the part of the body and chronic inflammation due to an unbalanced diet and a too sedentary life.

To counter these problems, it is possible to resort to some natural food supplements, including zeolite.

Zeolite is a mineral of volcanic origin, originating from the encounter between incandescent lava and sea water. It is very useful for those suffering from nickel allergy because it absorbs the heavy metals found within the body and eliminates them. Thanks to its powerful chelating action, zeolite passes through the body absorbing heavy metals and other toxins, without affecting the natural organic balance. It is possible to find zeolite in the form of powder or in tablets, to obtain an excellent result it is necessary to take it for at least a couple of months.

Already after one or two weeks, a first benefit will still be obtained, with the stopping of the formation of bubbles and blisters on the hands. This will stimulate the body's self-repair resources and restore the skin's hydrolipidic barrier.

Finding the harmony of the body and achieving well-being

Not only dyshidrosis, but any pathology, which affects the skin or any other organ of our body, requires special attention in finding the causes, which are often found within the body or derive from environmental and mental factors.

Achieving inner harmony and well-being is the first, very important step in regaining health and fighting ailments and pathologies. Also in the case of dyshidrosis, it is important to act not only on the dermatological manifestations, but on the physical and internal causes: contact with metallic materials, chemicals and aggressive detergent products, for example, but also a period of stress, an unbalanced diet and an unhealthy lifestyle.
