Weird dry rash on top of my hands.???

I have this weird dry rash that is on top of my hands... my skin is cracking and there are little red bumps starting from the knuckles down. My knuckles are peeling a little bit and they look slightly blue like they are bruised. Oh and they itch Super bad.!! I scratch and now they started to bleed a little... I tried putting lotion and medicine on it but it ends up burning alot.! :c so I dont know if it has to do with my pregnancy or what but it hurts really bad... Im 27 weeks...

Eczema? I have developed it in pregnancy and my symptoms are similar. My doctor told me to use hydrocortizone cream and it helps a lot.

Sounds like my dry skin lol. Get some neosporin and at a pharmacy buy a box of white cotton gloves. Put the neosporin on and cover your hands with the gloves. Should clear up in a week then just moisturize! Like everytime you wash your hands... put lotion on. Do this whenever your hands feel even slightly dry.

If the neosporin with cotton gloves doesnt work give your Dr a call cause then its likely something else like Eczema as the previous poster thought. Oh! Do the neosporin and gloves at night. The longer your skin can absorb the ointment the better - and every night til it clears up which like I said should be a week. :)

I have a rash on my ring fingers on both hands, my Dr has always gave me this cream called fucidin. I'm not sure what it is, it flares up every now & then. Little bumps that are super itchy, they ooze clear liquid sometimes, gets red, then really dry & flaky when it heals. Seems like right when it clears up, it starts all over again.

I get this all the time! I work in care and im constantly washing my hands, ive always been the same, my doc called it "housewives hands" its because my hands are always getting wet! I wouldnt say its worse during my pregnancy but i cant use as many creams as i did because they irritate me more!! Ive recently been using vasaline because it moistorises my hands and also protects them from getting wet!
