Hyperkeratotic hand eczema compared to other subgroups of hand eczema – a retrospective study with a follow‐up questionnaire
Only a few clinical trials on hand eczema have included further classification into subtypes, and there is a need for studies evaluating the present classifications.

Hand eczema (HE) is the most common skin disease affecting hands. Although the current treatment guidelines do not recommend use of systemic antihistamines as routine therapy, they seem to be widely
Clinical Features of Contact Dermatitis
Clinical features of contact dermatitis include the symptoms: pruritus, stinging, smarting, and pain. The typical clinical finding is dermatitis at the site of contact with the offending object.
