My daughter is 7 and she had this skin condition for a couple years now. She will be fine for a couple weeks and then out of nowhere tops of the hands will get this dry skin that will slowly over a day turn red and start burning like sun burn. No cream helps. It will lest for maybe two days and then go away. We tried to get her to a dermatologist but the problem is getting her there when the condition is present. We have switched detergents and hand soaps etc. Can’t connect it to any food allergies and as far as we can tell she has none. She was on several Allergy medications, over the counter as well as prescription for mites allergy and that did not effect the skin issue. Attached are the best pictures I was able to take.
