Experiencing red, rough and burnt skin on one finger and dry, crackling, painful skin on the other. Help?

I am experiencing two skin issues on my right hand . One is on the top of my pointer finger . It is round red, feels rough and like it is burned (but I did not burn it). The second issue is between my middle and fourth fingar. The skin is very dry, crackling and painful. I do not know why this happened but more importantly I want to get them healed and avoid this from happening again. Thank you, T

Dermatologist 's  Response

from your description, it seems that you most likely have eczema.

it will be important to apply a moisturizer thrice a day and also apply a prescription strength steroid cream like clobetasol.

it will be best to consult your dermatologist for the same.

take care.
