What is the cure for rash in skin which is peeling and spreading?

I have a skin rash on my hands. It started on my ring finger then moved to my thumb. Now it s on both hands. My doctor prescribed a cream. I ve tried so many. It seems like I m losing the first layer of skin. Very dry. Moisturizers do not help. It constantly is pealing. Bleeds sometimes. Afraid of infection.
