Customer Question

I have eczema off and on. Last night it was super hot and we had the ac on and I woke up with itchy palms. Also sides of the fingers very itchy. I put aquaphor on and it went away for the most part but is this a symptom of something more serious, or a common thing ?

This is Dr. David

sometimes with hot weather, eczema can be more reactive and you can get a heat rash which can make your skin more irritated and sensitive.

I'm glad the aquafor moisturizer helped.

this sounds like a temporary worsening of the eczema.

hopefully when the weather cools off, this won't happen again

let me know if you have questions.
