    skin condition
    alector posted:
    my wife has developed a skin condition on the palms of her hands. She has been to Dermatologists and they state that the condition is caused by water,
    Her palms itch so bad that she is literally scratching the skin right off of her palms and she is unable to use her hands for anything.
    She has tried many creams and concoctions to try to ease the pain, but nothing seems to work. it clears up for a day or two and then starts all over again. She wears gloves while doing housework and when utilizing water, but it does not help.
    Could someone please provide a remedy, I hate seeing her suffer like this. Last night we plastered her palms with antibiotics and wrapped them. During the night, she scratched so hard that she scratched right through the wrapping. It is getting to a point that she cannot sleep at night. Please HELP.
