Risk Factors

People who have chronic skin conditions, allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing dyshidrotic eczema than those with no history. A family history of eczema is also a risk factor.

This particular type of eczema is more prevalent in young adults but also occurs in older adults. Older adults are more at risk of developing the condition if they have periods of high stress. Anyone who sweats profusely or frequently has wet hands and feet could be at risk.
