does that look like eczema?  I'm 25 and I've never had anything like this before so I don't even know why it would be showing up now if it is Eczema?  I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday and I'll bring it up then,  but is that what it is?   What causes flare ups like this?   The only thing I can think of that's different is the stress I've been dealing with..

It may be. I'm not an expert on it but I do know it can be dry, flaky patches that itch. Does it ever get red? I know it flares up too so it's possible. I hope you get an answer from the doc!

My husband is dealing with this to the point that his fingers are cracking and have no fingerprints. It is awful. They originally thought eczema and gave him a steroid cream. That didnt work so now they are thinking psoriasis and are sending him to a dermatologist.

I guess it’s possible, but it personally doesn’t look like eczema to me.
stress can make eczema worse, and it isn’t always itchy. But I’ve had it for 28 years and it’s never looked like that.

It looks more like psoriasis to me.

It looks like really dry skin but I'm not sure. I've had eczema on my hand particularly my fingers and it was just really itchy little bumps. The fingers that had it look different from my other fingers now.
