    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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
