Red blotch on hand with pimples and rash

i got a tingly rash on the back of my hand, i noticed the other day that i had a red blotch on the back of my left hand looks like it could be a bite but isnt raised, but i can feel a very small raise under the skin , then very small red pimples appeared around it but didnt take any notice of it cause there was no itch . Then yesterday i noticed on my right hand that i had a slight rash that developed and spread through out the day , its a little red and seemed to have spread up my finger. i took an anti- histamine and it doesnt seem to have made a difference , and put some tiger balm on it . It has not spread on left hand .

Dermatologist Dr. Pravin Banodkar's  Response
thanks for using HealthCareMagic
I would be pleased to answer your question .

I suggest you should not apply tiger Balm as it will increase your problem .
You should continue with the antihistamine .
I suggest you should apply a moisturizer on the area twice a day . Mix a little bit of cortisone cream on that area twice a day along with the moisturizer . If it does not improve in 5 days you will need to visit a Dermatologist to rule out other conditions .

From your description it looks like a contact dermatitis.
