hello and welcome to hcm forum,
i would like yo inform you that rashes which occurred after cream application is due to an ingredient to which you are allergic, you have not mentioned if you have had any history of allergy before.
i assume this is the first time, you had an allergy.
i would suggest you to use a medicated hand cream rather than cosmetic creams, dr. reddy's hand cream(venusia) , cetaphil dam cream have moisturizing properties.
but for now, kindly visit a dermatologist who will prescribe you some anti allergic tablets, for treatment of rashes.
i hope i answered you query,
i wish you good health.
