I am just now getting this post, usually the site emails me when I have a response but this time it didn't. I'm sure it is something with my settings I need to update. Anyway, I have been diagnosed with Psoriasis, which I'm not sure is the same thing? I've had it in other areas like the scalp, back of legs, and genital area. My dermatologist thinks it's Psoriasis but when I looked at pictures, I thought it looked like dyshidrotic eczema. I have been prescribed topical steroids but like you, I deal with kids all day so I'm constantly washing my hands (no comparison to the amount of times you do). Did you stop the TNF-a inhibitor or are you still taking it? I'm really freaking out. I'll post my recent post on this thread.
