Caption: Pompholyx with urticaria. View of a patient's hand suffering from pompholyx, an acute form of eczema (at top right) in which itchy blisters form over the hands or soles. Here, the blisters have been scratched to bleeding point. Pompholyx is also called dyshydrotic eczema, which may develop due to an allergic response. In this case it is associated with urticaria (nettle rash or hives), a transient swelling of the skin which ranges from small spots to itchy white weals (as here). Under- lying vasodilation & accumulation of tissue fluid in the dermis develops as an allergic reaction. Both disorders, however, can occur for no known reason. Treatment includes corticosteroid drugs.
