The stress or the lack of sleep that is causing it to flare up. I guess i should note that my anxiety has given me mild to severe hand sweating that persists for probably 80% of my waking life so that could also be a factor.

Sorry for my weird paragraph layout, using KF on my phone causes the words to splice into each other as I'm typing from line to line so I have to press "enter" to avoid having missing words and typos.

Glad it cleared up for you. I used to get bad eczema on my hands during stress. Once I was done university it started to go away lol. This was before I ever drank Kava but I would def say there is a connection.

One thing you could try if it ever really bothers you is putting a generous amount of vaseline on your hands than slipping on some cotton gloves before you go to bed. Not always a cure but a good way to keep it under control

Makes sense to me.
