I had been washing my hands excessively due to my job, but havn't because I have had major hand problems.
The problem started on my finger under my ring I always wear, it was extremely itchy at first, then went dry and sore, and is now peeling. It has now spread all over my hand and is now on both hands. I'm sure it is eczema because I did suffer from this when I was younger, but only minor irrations. My hands are constantly itching, sore, cracked and also peeling. Sometimes I just have to clap them together and they sometimes crack!
I have discontinued to wash my hands with soap, only water and I am using a mild eczema cream but with no results.
I was hoping that someone would be able to help me out? Any advice? I should really go and see a doctor but I would like to see what other people say before I do. Cheers!
