hi srikanth
we just gave answer to this question here is again i am writing the same
it must be allergic dermatitis
you can use petroleum ointment - homeopathic ointment
and petroleum and graphites 30 pills 5-5-5 from each for 4-5 days and your problem will be solved
its not a major issue so just start medicines now and get rid of your problem earliest
but make sure that during the coarse of treatment do not give any reason to get it provoked, avoid any chemical or harmful substance to manage by your hands

all the best

to purchase any of homeopathic medicines online

Apply moisturer cream to the area. Avoid exposure to sunlight. Do not scratch the area. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. Sleep for atleast 6 hours a day. Consult a Dermatologist if it get's worse.
