How bad can dyshidrotic eczema get?

ANSWER

The most common signs of this skin condition are small, itchy blisters on the palms of your hand and on your fingers. Dyshidrotic eczema can be mild or severe. If you have a severe case that affects your feet, the blisters can make it hard to walk. Blisters on your hands can make it hard to do things like cook, type, or wash dishes.
