|DYSIDROSIS may be defined as an inflammation of the sweat
structures of the hands and feet and is characterized by redness
and swelling with distension of the sweat ducts in the form
of sago-like points and development of blisters.
It appears more in summer than in winter and attacks symmetrically
the sides of the fingers, the palms and sometimes the soles
of the feet. Those suffering from nervous debility are susceptible
to this disease. It tends to run a definite course of two
or three weeks. The epidermis becomes lacerated and peels
off, leaving the skin sore and painful.
Clematis and Natrum sulph are the most important medicines
that can be used
