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
