Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you are having either tinea manus or contact allergic dermatitis.

Avoid contact with soap, dust,grass,dust, pollens,fertiliser,pollutants,insects, perfume, cosmetics..etc

Do not wash the hands excessively.

Take antifungal tablets withantihistaminics for 2 weeks.

If poor response, add steroid tablets in tappering dose for 2 weeks.

Apply combined steroid and antifungal cream.

Still, no response, diagnosis should be revised.

For that , you consult dermatologist.
