thanks for using health care magic

It would be best to see a dermatologist for appropriate diagnosis. Rash on the hands could be due to contact dermatitis in which case there is a substance that you are exposed to frequently and which causes you to have the skin reaction. Such substance, when you abstain from using or touching it, your symptoms get better.

So, it is imperative to meet a doctor for a detail examination and appropriate diagnosis
