Itchy hands can have many causes. The most common cause of itchy hands in my clinic is eczema. Eczema is a rash that the body produces that can be itchy and scaly, or bumpy and scaly. It causes a lot of discomfort. I recommend gentle skin care, like using warm water and unscented, hypoallergenic bar soap to wash the hands. Also, hypoallergenic, scent-free hand creams. If this does not help, It is best to be evaluated by a board certified dermatologist for a diagnosis. Kaminska Dermatology Care Team READ MORE
