*  Efficacy and Safety of a Retinoid in the Treatment of Severe Chronic Hand Eczema - Tabular View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Chronic hand eczema (CHE)is a distressing disease that poses difficult problems for dermatologists. CHE leads to considerable work-absenteeism, disability and exclusion from labour market. Conventional treatments, including highly potent topical steroids, yield often unsatisfactory results. This study investigates the efficacy and safety of oral alitretinoin, a retinoid, in patients who have not responded to avoidance of causative factors, such as contact allergens and skin irritants, non-medicated skin care and highly potent topical steroids. Eligible patients are randomly assigned to receive alitretinoin or a placebo ...

Bone mineral density scans of the left proximal femur (total hip) and anterior-posterior lumbar spine were obtained by use of DXA, at Baseline, at end of therapy, and 1 year (48 weeks) after end of therapy. In case of abnormality or surgery of the left hip, the right hip was to be used. If both hips were affected, the participant was not eligible for DXA. Vertebrae L1 to L4 had to be completely scanned. At least 3 vertebrae had to be free of any abnormalities potentially interfering with DXA analysis (eg, fractures, large osteophytes), otherwise the participant was not eligible for DXA. Baseline was defined at Week 0. Change from Baseline was calculated by subtracting the Baseline value from the individual post-baseline values. Percentage change from Baseline = (change from Baseline / Baseline value) * 100. Least square means and 95% confidence interval has been presented ...

*  Hand eczema - Wikipedia
Hand eczema presents on the palms and soles, and may sometimes be difficult or impossible to differentiate from atopic dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, and psoriasis, which also commonly involve the hands. Even a biopsy of all these conditions may not result in a definitive diagnosis, as all three conditions may demonstrate spongiosis and crusting on the hands. Non-communicable inflammation of the skin of the hands is referred to as hand eczema. Hand eczema is widely prevalent and, as it is a very visible condition associated with severe itching or pain, has serious consequences for the affected person including a high psychological impact. Different disease patterns can be identified according to the course of the illness, appearance of symptoms, degree of severity, or catalysts. Prognosis is hard to predict for individual cases of chronic hand eczema and usually differs from ...

*  Does tobacco smoking influence the occurrence of hand eczema?
article{c4d0dfd1-3e18-4dad-94b1-91e08a6bcdf6, abstract = {Tobacco smoking is known to influence various inflammatory skin diseases and an association between tobacco smoking and hand eczema has been proposed in some studies. To examine a possible association between reported current tobacco smoking and the occurrence of hand eczema. Previously collected questionnaire data on the occurrence of hand eczema in three occupational cohorts and corresponding controls from the general population were studied. The questionnaires used included questions on 1-year prevalence of hand eczema and questions on smoking habits. For one occupational group, hairdressers and their controls, information on amount of smoking was obtained. Information on age, sex and history of atopy was also available. In total, answers regarding smoking and hand eczema were obtained from 13 452 individuals. Out of 3493 smokers, 437 (12.5%) reported ...

*  Quality of Life, Use of Topical Medications and Socio-economic Data in Hand Eczema : A Swedish Nationwide Survey
Hand eczema is common and has an adverse impact on the lives of patients. There is a need for population-based surveys on the pharmacoepidemiological aspects, quality of life and impact of socioeconomic factors in hand eczema. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate these factors. A questionnaire-based nationwide survey of health was performed, including questions on hand eczema, use of pharmaceuticals and socioeconomic factors. Quality of life was estimated with the generic instrument Short Form 36 (SF-36). The questionnaire was sent to 7,985 persons (age range 18-84 years), response rate 61.1% (n=4,875). The 1-year prevalence of hand eczema in the study population was 7.5%. In this group, quality of life was lower. All dimensions of SF-36 were affected, most markedly general health and those dimensions reporting on mental health. In the group with self-reported hand eczema, 51% reported using topical ...

Occupational irritant hand dermatitis (OIHD) is an important cause of discomfort in the working population. It is an inflammatory reaction of the skin occurring in people who come in contact with water, detergents, chemicals and other irritants in their working day. The incidence rate of hand dermatitis was 5.5 cases/1000 persons-years (women = 9.6 and men = 4.0).1 It was stated that the high-incidence rate was associated with the female sex, contact allergy, atopic eczema and wet work. This is very pertinent to nurses and other healthcare workers when you consider the implications of constant hand washing for … ...

*  Occupational skin exposure to water : a population-based study.
Background Occupational exposure to skin irritants, in particular to water, is an important risk factor for hand eczema. Objectives To assess occupational skin exposure to water in the general population. Methods As part of a public health survey in Stockholm, Sweden, 18 267 gainfully employed individuals aged 18-64 years completed a questionnaire with previously validated questions regarding occupational skin exposure to water. Results Altogether 16% reported exposure to water for (1/2) h or more a day, and 13% reported exposure to water more than 10 times a day. Furthermore, 7% reported water exposure of more than 2 h and 6% of more than 20 times a day. Women reported more water exposure than men and many female-dominated occupations were seen to comprise water exposure. Women were also more exposed than men within the same jobs. Young adults were more exposed than older. A total of 18% were employed in high-risk occupations for hand eczema. Fifty-nine per cent of ...

*  Treatments to prevent irritant hand dermatitis in the workplace | Cochrane
Occupational irritant hand dermatitis (OIHD) is an inflammatory reaction of the skin occurring in people who regularly come into contact with water, detergents, chemicals, and other irritants during their working day. Occupations at particular risk include hairdressing, nursing, cleaning, building, and the dye, printing, metal, and food industries. The condition is relatively common and affects about 5 to 20 out of 10,000 full-time workers per year. The first signs are red and scaly patches in the finger webs and on the knuckle area of the hands. Itchy blisters and painful cracks and possibly infection are common, and eventually the skin becomes thickened. Preventing OIHD from developing is important because it is difficult to clear once it starts.. Although the findings of this review were generally positive we concluded that there is insufficient evidence, at present, for the effectiveness of most of the treatments identified for preventing new cases of OIHD in the ...

It is estimated that more than 13 million workers in the United States are potentially exposed to chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin. Dermal exposure to hazardous agents can result in a variety of occupational diseases and disorders, including occupational skin diseases (OSD) and systemic toxicity. Historically, efforts to control workplace exposures to hazardous agents have focused on inhalation rather than skin exposures. As a result, assessment strategies and methods are well developed for evaluating inhalation exposures in the workplace; standardized methods are currently lacking for measuring and assessing skin exposures.
