Continuing skin problem on just middle fingers
For the past several months, I've had an issue with the skin on my middle fingers that has recently gotten much worse.  It's come and go off and on.  It starts off as really dry skin in patches on each of just my middle fingers.  The patches get pretty dry and then often crack, and then small red hard bumps appear around the dry areas.  I've treated it off and on with standard hydrocortisone, and that seems to have help for the most part in making it subside, but it hasn't ever gone completely away.  Additionally, in the past couple weeks, the problem on my right finger has gotten much worse, and much more uncomfortable.

I've made an appointment with a dermatologist, but I can't get in for another week.  I'm trying to decide if I should try somewhere else to try and get it looked at sooner.  It's driving me nuts.

Here's a couple more pictures if anyone has any ideas, or suggestions for other over the counter treatments.

Found this link somewhere else.  Seems like it could fit the bill.  The pictures are a little more severe I think then what my finger looks like, but close.  

Pompholyx or It is also known as dyshidrotic eczema or vesicular eczema of the hands and/or feet.
