    Hi Anon_156775,

    Please see a doctor for help to find out what is causing the skin on your fingers to peel and get irritated.

    Try using the Symptom Checker tool and use the WebMD search engine with dyshidrotic eczema to pull up articles that may be helpful to you. We also have an Eczema Health Center which is linked at the top of this board. That would be a good starting place to look up articles about various skin conditions.

    Take care!

    - Annie
    Take a look at the announcement area for links to the various WebMD skin related health centers!
