Solvent-Resistant Gel Promotes Healing

by NAILS Staff | April 20, 2018

Have you ever encountered a client with especially sweaty hands accompanied by a rash? While it’s not your job as a tech to diagnose a client, it’s important be aware of the term dyshidrosis in case a client informs you she has this condition. You might also want to suggest a medical visit, if appropriate.

Dyshidrosis  is a rash caused by over-activity of the sweat glands of the fingers. The rash consists of tiny blisters that are usually itchy and filled with fluid. Depending on severity,  treatment options can be a prescription for antihistamines or anti-itch creams, soaking with witch hazel, or even changing one’s diet. Dyshidrosis can also be called hand eczema, dyshidrotic eczema, or ponpholyx.
