Itchy red patch on palm, please help!

Postby jess5678 on Wed Aug 07, 2019 11:59 am

Hello! I have been having this patch on my left palm for the last year that doesn't go away. I never use to have this at all. I use to have eczema as a child but it's gone away now. It's a small patch around 3cm. It feels really itchy sometimes. It has small blisters sometimes but then they dry out. Seems to happen more when the weather is wet but can be random. I went to the clinic and the nurse ask me to put hydrocortisone on it. It did not help. Please help me on this thank you!

Hi jess5678

Thank you for your recent post. When you had eczema as a child were the symptoms similar? If the cream the nurse recommended has not worked you could try talking to your local pharmacy to see if the pharmacist can recommend anything over the counter. Otherwise we would recommend you go back to your doctor to see if they can prescribe/recommend something else. Please have a look at our free support programme, http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/psp/mydryskin.php which you may find helpful.

Please let us know how you get on.

Kind regards

Thank you for the reply. No I have never had in on my palms before and it doesn’t really look like it’s eczema. Last time they looked at it they just dismissed it and said it’s dry skin or something...
