2018 Update: I’m so thankful my video and blog article has helped as many people as it has. It’s amazing how many doctors have misdiagnosed dyshidrotic eczema and I completely understand how stressful it is to both have and deal with.

– I wear dish washing gloves when I do the dishes to keep the ultra-concentrated dish soap off my skin. I recommend the following gloves because I’ve found them to be the most durable and longest-lasting:
