Blotchy red hands, skin peeling, small blisters on my fingers, tingling sensation

I ve over the last 2 weeks gotten blotchy red hands which are beginning to peel now. Occasionally I get what appear to be small blisters on my fingers. I get a tingling sensation every so often in them. It s making me uncomfortable. I have a fungal infection in my groin/genital region. Could it have spread? I recently moved to Thailand so I was wondering if the dramatic climate change has had an effect also?

hi. It could be dyshidrotic eczema, inflammtory tinea Mannum or simply keratolysis exfoliativa.

Get a KOH scraping from the scale which will help confirm or rule out tinea Mannum.
>If KOH come negative it seems most likely to be either Dyshidrotic eczema or keratolysis exfoliativa.
>If KOH is positive then apply antifungal creams like clotrimzole, ketoconazole, sertaconazole or luliconazole for 4 weeks and also take oral fluconazole once every week for 4-6 weeks.

Treatment of both conditions is somewhat similar. Use a moisturising cream mixed with a moderately potent steroid like mometasone and apply twice daily for 2 weeks. Avoid using excessive soaps.
