Does anyone have dyshidrotic eczema?

My daughter is 2 years old and has these pus filled blisters that turn into sores on her hands. A nurse told me that it sounded like Hand Foot and Mouth Disease b/c of the sores and also the fact that she has had a fever. But she has been sick since she started daycare which has been about 4 weeks now. She was diagnosed with eczema by her pediatrician about a year ago and when she has bad flare ups we put triamcinilone cream on her. Can a 2 year old have dyshidrotic eczema? Does anyone have any pictures they can share with me? Any information would be greatful!!

  • I'm not entirely sure. I have eczema but only on one of my hands and the flare-ups cause blisters. They're fluid filled and usually burst when I'm in the shower or doing dishes. I have a cream to put on them. That's the only place on my body I get them.

    My kids have eczema too but it's not the same "look" as mine. Theirs is just really red and dry...and sometimes from itching so much it scabs.
