Hi,
Exfoliative keratolysis is a common skin condition in which there is focal peeling of the palms.It is more common during the summer months, and most often affects young adults.
The symptoms are aggravated by exposure to irritants including water, soap, detergents and solvents. Eventually normal skin forms, but frequently exfoliative keratolysis recurs within a few weeks.
The following may be helpful:Protection from irritants, Emollient hand creams especially those containing urea, lactic acid, or silicone and/or Photochemotherapy.
