Advice needed

Postby igraham73 on Tue Jun 13, 2017 8:13 am


My mum has been diagnosed with Severe hand and feet eczema and is known to be allergic Methylisothiozoline and Methylchloroisothiazolane.
She has been on various emollients and steroid creams and her GP has referred her to a Dermatologist for PUVA bath treatment but we have been waiting 10 weeks and the treatment is not available with the private hospitals I have spoken to.
Ive attached some pictures of her hands and feet and be really grateful for any feedback as feel we are not getting anywhere with getting my mum better.

Sorry to hear of the severe hand eczema... perhaps for now to keep off irritants, not do washing/ use detergent/wet wipes, and keep the hands moisturized?
See if this interview with dermatologist can offer some ideas for your mom, take care ... -skincare/
