Brief Answer:
Information

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

This looks like it might be a mild case of eczema. Does it itch, and do you have a history of allergies or eczema? If so, you can try a low dose of steroid cream such as hydrocortisone 1 percent cream. This will help with mild itching and inflammation. Wash off your fingers after applying the cream. The cream will not stop the underlying problem though, so if the rash is from an exposure to something that you are allergic to, avoidance of that substance is important.

Brief Answer:
Cort-H 1% cream

Detailed Answer:
I am looking at creams you may have available in XXXXXXX and I see that Cort-H 1% Cream is the medication I mentioned.

However, if the rash gets worse despite this, then it is time to see your doctor.

I hope this helps.
