Hello. This is my first time here, sorry if I missed anything. I know alot of forums have introduction rituals and what not. Anyway, just need some opinions on a skin condition I have. I don't know what it is and can't afford to go to a dermatologist. Any diagnoses/treatment would be appreciated. It's getting pretty bad. My hands are grossly dry all of the time. They are rough and it gets worse around the lines on my hands. The weird part is when I get them wet the dry spots get seperated and peel off in patches. It looks similar to a drained blister except the skin is not smooth. It is white and bubbly. This part of the condition is concentrated around my hand from thumb to pinkie and spreads onto the palm. For some reason these parts of my hand also hold dirt and grease from work. I can't wash it off, it soaks into my skin. Don't know if this helps but, the skin on my arms and face are mildly dry. Occassionally, they will get worse. Never close to how my hands are though. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
