Pompholyx is a type of eczema that typically affects the sides of the fingers, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. It can also affect the nail folds. The small blisters characteristic of pompholyx are itchy and painful. Once they dry up and peel, the skin underneath may be red and sensitive. The blisters tend to recur for months or years.

1. How Does Pompholyx Begin?

This condition typically starts with a burning sensation and prickling in the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Then, small blisters develop, which turn into bigger blisters that may weep. These blisters may become infected, leading to pain, swelling, redness, and pustules. The skin can develop painful cracks as it dries out.
