Itchy, flaky, rash on hand and wrist with swelling. No relief with myclog cream. Histroy of rash on eyelid during winter. Suggest

I have a rash on the back of my hand and wrist with a little going up my forearm. It has lasted for about 2 wks. It starts as a series of red bumps and then starts to turn the skin all read and swells. It also gets flakey and is very itchy. It has not gone beyond or even close to the elbow. I have treated it with some mycolog cream which doesn't seem to be working. I had this cream because I used to get a rash on my eyelids and the area above that during the winter time. What can this be and how should I treat it?

Thanks for the query.
Red flaky skin can be seen in conditions like psoriasis or eczema.
according to me it is most probably eczema, as it is itchy.
Myclog may not be very benificial for you.
You may need a stronger steroid.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

If the lesions persist, please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis
Thank you
