The top of my hands are itchy then the skin gets thick and flares up and crusty. I tried a lot of creams but it won’t heal. Some are just helping a little but after a while it starts again

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
