ABSTRACT:  Hand dermatitis is a common skin condition that often has a chronic and/or relapsing clinical course. Several clinical forms of hand dermatitis have been described, including contact (i.e., allergic and irritant), hyperkeratotic (i.e., psoriasiform or tylotic), frictional, nummular, atopic, pompholyx (i.e., dyshidrosis), and chronic vesicular hand dermatitis. In the present review, therapeutic options for these types of hand dermatitis are discussed in detail, focusing on treatments… Expand
Management of Atopic Hand Dermatitis.
TLDR
Clinical aspects of clinical aspects of hand eczema in patients with atopic dermatitis are provided, for example, as irritant or allergic contact dermatitis. Expand
Contact Dermatitis: Therapeutics When Avoidance Fails
TLDR
Once a clinically relevant allergen is diagnosed by patch testing, avoidance is the mainstay of therapy; however, medical management interventions may need to be employed in recalcitrant cases. Expand

Hand Dermatitis: Review of Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
TLDR
Common management recommendations include the avoidance of irritants and potential allergens along with the use of emollients and topical corticosteroids to decrease inflammation. Expand
Pharmacotherapy for allergic contact dermatitis
TLDR
A therapeutic approach to allergic contact dermatitis is reviewed, finding that patients potentially require symptomatic and immunosuppressive therapy to diminish the manifestations of their disease. Expand

Management of hand dermatitis.
TLDR
Therapy of hand dermatitis focuses on identifying exogenous factors and avoiding these where possible, and Steroids are invaluable, but gentle skin care remains the basis of treatingHand dermatitis. Expand
Immediate hypersensitivity in hand dermatitis. Role of food-contact dermatitis.
TLDR
Treatment resistance appeared due to handling certain foods that produced burning and stinging in the chronically eczematous skin and not in otherwise normal skin, and avoiding these foods, as contactants, led to resolution of the dermatitis. Expand

TLDR
Two hundred and twenty cases of hand eczema were evaluated for uncomplicated allergic contact dermatitis and changed dramatically as a result of allergic contact investigation. Expand
