Has anyone experienced excessive peeling of there hands and feet after diving for a few days? I get it on day 3 every time i go on a trip. It's very painful i've tried creams and seen dermatologists. Most recently i tried diving with a drysuit on a vacation and still got it on day 3.

I get peeling on my hands on tropical trips, but not my feet. It usually starts after 5-6 days. No blisters, no pain. I only lose a fine layer of skin.
Once I get home it clears up without any treatment.
I have always assumed that it occurs as a result of contact with hydroid-like stingers on shot lines etc.
My version sounds much less severe than your affliction. Maybe my shorter exposure time is a limiting factor.

Stan
