Dermatologist 's  Response
You are suffering from hand dermatitis. Hand dermatitis, if not treated properly, may get secondarily infected because there is breach of normal skin barrier.
You should have given details regarding your age, sex, occupation, duration of disease, aggravating factors etc.
Avoid contact with dust, harsh chemicals like soap, detergents, vegetable cutting etc.
Consult the dermatologist for proper treatment.
