Thank you for the information. Your condition may be explained by two conditions:
1. Hyperkeratotic Eczema
2. Palmar Psoriasis
These two conditions look very similar in appearance and require a skin biopsy to reliably differentiate them. However your history does sound more like Palmar Psoriasis
.Here is a regimen here that should help:
1. Cortizone cream
+ Mg 217 sal-acid ointment
twice a day (morning & evening) over all affected areas. Mix these two creams in equal proportion before applying.
2. Triton Mg 217 intensive strength medicated tar ointment
: apply over skin lesions once at night. Wash off in the morning. Can stain clothing so appropriate precautions should be taken.
3. Balnetar Therapeutic Tar Bath
: Add to tub of water as directed on the bottle - soak hands in tub for 15-20 minutes. If this is not possible then use soapworks coal tar soap bar
and leave lather on for 5 minutes. Product does not smell very good and will stain clothing but is effective.
4. Omega-3 fatty acid
capsules - 2 in the morning & 2 at night after meals. Use this only if you have no heart problems.
5. Cap Lumitene
30 mg twice a day.
6. Olive oil or Neutrogena body oil massage to affected areas once a day. This is optional.
NOTE: All of these are available over the counter & online at amazon.com
. Treatment will need to be continued for 2-3 months for maximum benefit.
Hope this information is useful, please feel free to get back to me regarding any clarification if required.
