Causes of Dyshidrotic Eczema

There is no single cause of dyshidrotic eczema. Both internal and external factors can set off a breakout of blisters. Extreme stress, seasonal allergies, humid weather, metal allergies and spending prolonged periods in water are a few of the more common causes of dyshidrotic eczema.

Dyshidrotic eczema is typically experienced by people who have a history of atopic dermatitis, which is a very common type of skin inflammation that causes raised, closely connected blisters.
