Refer patients whose disease is not easily managed to a dermatologist because vesicular palmoplantar eczema is likely to be a lifelong disease (albeit intermittent in some patients).

If a contact allergen is suspected or if they do not improve with therapy, patients should be referred to a dermatologist for consideration of a patch test. [12]
