Brief Answer:
Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hllo,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

The attached image clearly indicates there is scaling of skin over the fingers.
This can result from either vitamin deficiency such as niacin among others.

It can also result from variety of skin disorders such as Psoriasis, Contact dermatitis, Eczema and fungal skin infections, immune system disorders.


Considering the variety of causes it is important to get examined by in person consultation with dermatologist.

At this level I must assure you that most cases of scaling of dermal skin are mild in nature and easily treatable. However it is important not to delay the treatment as early diagnosis often mitigates the problem in bud.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
