I have been dealing with this problem for over a month now. Twice I have tried to get in to see my dermatologist to no avail. I have itchy bumps on the back of my hands, some of my fingers and the top of my right wrist. This is all on the back only and it has not spread to any other part of my body. I have tried different moisturizing creams with vitamin E, coconut oil. Cortisone-10, Gold Bond, peroxide and Neosporin with band-aids. I wash my hands thoroughly a lot everyday, I have OCD. I use an anti-bacterial soap, I talked to a nurse over the phone and she suggested I go see my dermatologist as well. I explained the situation to her and she did not feel that this was anything serious that it wasn't life-threatening or life-altering. I have a ganglion cyst on the top of my right wrist also. They are not bleeding and there is no absess, there is nothing leaking out of the infected areas. In the winter season I am used to having dry, red, irritated skin and a few cracked areas on my hands and wrists and I use plenty of moisturizing cream. But this is a first for me, I don't know what to do? I am really worried and scared, I am 45 years old now and I have been dealing with a lot of tension and stress as well as anxieties. My counselor and I have discussed this a couple of times that I might be going thru pre-menopause. I've also dealt with some other health problems back in the fall and the early part of this year. Twice I found myself at the emergency room. The first was for stomotitus and the second time was for an absess in a very, private area of my body. Both had to be treated with antibiotics, a pain killer and I was taking a probiotic. All of that is over now but my hands I do not know what this is? I am hoping that someone here can reach out to me and help me, please? I hope to hear from someone here, hopefully soon. Thank you, bless you.
