Thanks for writing to us.
you seem to be suffering from hand eczema.
To treat the same use a good emollient like cetaphil dam or venusia max multiple times in a day. Apply a steroid antibiotic cream like clobetasol gentamycin cream( cosvate g or clop g) twice daily. Avoid using harsh chemicals, detergents, cutting vegetables etc or wear gloves while working.
This should help you out.
Take care
