My hands (palms, fingers, back of hand) go very wrinkled and painful when in contact with water. I’m not talking about immersing them in the bath for a long time. I mean even if rain gets on them.

I tried calling you.

But it was not attended,

Please let me know in how many hours from should I call you back please.

Best regards - Dr Sumanth Amperayani

Hello...I understand your concern.

This happens when the turgidity of the fluid comes out when you immerse hands for longer time in water. This is completely physiological and nothing to worry about at all.

The watr will come out due to excess salt content in the water outside and hence the skin appears tohave some wrinkles.

This is a normal phenomenon and nothing to worry about.

This is not a disease process please.

Be rest assured.
