After hands get wet raised white patches appear with small holes

7825949?1333395011
I noticed about a month ago that everytime i take a shower, wash my hands, do dishes, anything with water. But after my hands would get wet I would have these white raised patches on my palms that have small holes inside that patches. I went to the derm today to see what they think it might be and they told me they were not sure of the problem. Even when my hands appear to be sweaty these patches come back. When my hands are dry the patches are not as noticable, but you can still see the small holes and where the patches normaly would be if my hands were wet. I have no idea what this is but if anyone could help that would be great. Ill post a picture of it so you can see what it looks like while wet.

I also have this problem and the dermatologist told me I may have an allergic reaction to a product. Were you able to find out what it is? Did it go away?

This may be a condition known as FOCAL PALMAR PEELING or EXFOLIATIVE KERATOLYSIS (Keratolysis Exvoliativa). Or, also ACRAL PEELING SKIN SYNDROME. Read up on these conditions as there is a lot of info on the internet that may interest you. Several members of my family have had this condition at various times. Usually it comes unexpectedly and goes away on its own.  

Good Luck!
