Types of Eczema Blisters
There are a variety of eczema types that produce eczema blisters. These are:
Dyshidrotic eczema—blisters that appear on the soles of feet and sides of fingers. They are extremely itchy and can cause scaly skin patches. Learn more about dyshidrotic eczema.
Allergic contact dermatitis —some allergens such as different types of foods, fragrances or materials (such as nickel) can cause eczema blisters. The eczema blistering can eventually break open and cause an infection.
Irritant contact dermatitis —some irritants such as harsh chemicals, detergents, dyes or more can aggravate skin and cause blistering dermatitis. In order to prevent further flare ups, it’s important to remove the irritant from your environment as best as possible in order to prevent infection.

Wet and Dry Wrapping
If your skin is extremely itchy and average moisturizing is not helping, you may want to look at both wet and dry wrap therapy . Both these treatments offer advanced relief by allowing the ointment, cream or balm to permeate the skin for longer periods of time, locking in the moisture.
