    The most common food triggers for eczema are eggs, milk, peanuts, soy, and wheat. Among these, eggs are probably associated the most strongly with eczema. Also an allergy to nickel (in computer keyboards, jewelry and some food, etc.). Nickel is commonly associated with dyshidrosis! You may want to get an allergy test or keep a journal of what you eat for about 4 weeks to see what the triggers are. Another trigger is warm humid weather! Whenever the weather gets humid, I usually get an outbreak. Plus, try to avoid getting overheated and sweating a lot. Dyshidrosis is associated with sweating. The sweat gets trapped under the skin and can't be sweat out, so you end up with blisters all over your palms and fingers. I was misdiagnosed for years with atopic eczema which is from contact with cleaning products or other irritants. I know now that it is definitely dyshidrosis eczema from doing my own research online.

    Here's some links about allergens that trigger dyshidrosis eczema:

    Nickel (a must read):

    Great site with lots of info from a lifetime dyshidrosis sufferer!

    Another good article:

    Join the Yahoo group for dyshidrosis like I just did!

    I really hope this helps as I know what it is like to live with this condition. It is a disability in my opinion...and there is no cure. :-( I hope you feel better soon. I know exactly how you feel and so do many others!!

    Feel free to write me directly at I hope you join the yahoo group too! It has been a tremendous help to me!

    Typically, skin conditions such as eczema have to do with poor dieting. Learn here

    Eczema food triggers such as eggs, fish, peanuts, and soy are known to help reduce flare-ups, but this can vary from person to person. These foods may also exacerbate eczema because many people cannot properly digest the proteins, which causes an allergic reaction.

    My little boy had eczema on his cheeks. I was not sure what method to use but I didn't want to make my boy go through any surgery treatments at this young age. Some suggested a plastic surgeon since it was in a very visible location but our family doctor recommend this natural guide.
