Hand Eczema (Hand Dermatitis)

Chances are good you’re washing or sanitizing your hands more now than you ever have in your life.  With the current state of things relating to COVID 19, we have all become more cautious with our hand hygiene.  Our hands ordinarily take a lot of abuse.  Repetitive wet-dry cycles from hand washing and/or irritating chemicals in hand sanitizer can compound these abuses.  This is especially the case in individuals with sensitive skin.  Considering this, at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands we expect that more and more of us will start to suffer from hand eczema (hand dermatitis).

Coronavirus Statement 2020
Coronavirus Statement 2020

We are aware of the increase in a number of coronavirus cases in the US and are continuously monitoring and reviewing this matter, especially as it pertains to our patients and staff. Our greatest concern is for our patients who are on prescriptions for skin, hair, or mucosal diseases that may alter and weaken the function of their immune system. For patients on these medications, if they feel like they have an infection of any sort, we recommend they consider holding their medication until they feel well again—having recovered from the infection.

Additionally, if it comes to pass that we have an increasing number of cases of coronavirus in Omaha or surrounding communities, we foresee that some patients may consider stopping their medication until circumstances have changed and concerns surrounding coronavirus have subsided.
