Abstract

In view of the dermatologic practice, we suggest to differentiate between dry (basic form: dyshidrosis lamellosa sicca) and wet types of dyshidrotic eruptions (with vesicles and erosions). Dry forms are preferably topically treated with urea-preparations without glucocorticoids, therapy of wet forms depends on the etiology and comprises glucocorticoids, antibiotics, and antimycotics topically and systematically applied, as well as skin protection and antiseptic and astringent baths. Artificial inflictions of dyshidrotic skin lesions by the patient himself are of great importance.
