I have has some kind of what I think is a rash on my left hand for quite some time. It began on my index finger and it is a combination of VERY dry, irritated flakey skin and almost resembles a chemical burn, as it heals it causes cracking, itching and burning. Just as it appears to be healed, it spreads to the next finger. It leaves a kind of scarring on the previous finger that almost looks like skin that has pruned. It stays on my left hand and just moves from finger to finger. I thought it was caused by cleaning products but I have changed to natural brands. I asked my doctor who just said it was an "infection" and to treat it with an antibiotcial ointment..it's not helping. Water makes it worse. Wierd huh? Any ideas?
