Shown below are images of skin diseases common on the hands of children. The hands are used so frequently in daily life that they are vulnerable to spreading contagious rashes. Some skin rashes occur specifically on the hands, such as hand-foot-and-mouth disease, which causes tiny white blisters on the palm. Other diseases, such as psoriasis (a chronic thickening of the skin) or eczema (a dry, itchy, red rash) may be all over the body in addition to the hands. Since the hands are in contact with soaps, detergents, lotions, and other potentially irritating chemicals, they are prone to developing contact irritant dermatitis (an itchy red rash that spreads over the skin that was exposed). Scabies, a highly contagious itchy rash caused by a mite that enters the skin, is another disease that is commonly found on the hands, particularly in the webs of the fingers and between the pointer finger and the thumb.
