So apparently hand eczema is severely aggravated when the hand on which the eczema exists comes into contact with detergents, soaps or any other hygiene-inducing products. In fact, frequent immersion in water (especially hot water) should be frowned upon.

This could mean many things, depending on the context:
  • [Conservative marriage arrangement]: Inability to do housework means 1 cow instead of 5.
  • [Singaporean living arrangments]: Continue to live with Mother.
  • [Principles regarding hiring of domestic help]: If you'll do all my ironing too, you're hired.
  • [Hygiene standards]: No more eating food off the floor, unless the piece of food is picked up by using a fork and not bacteria-laden fingers.
