There : There are several possibilities including psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and skin allergy. I would recommend that you only use a gentle cleanser when cleaning your hands (like cerave or cetaphil), and use a moisturizer cream such as aquaphor, cetaphil, eucerin, or cetaphil cream twice daily. If not better after a week or so, consider a trip to a dermatologist who can make an accurate diagnosis and formulate a good treatment plan for you. You might need a steroid cream/ointment to clear this up. I hope that helps!

Unsure: This rash would likely need to be examined and more history obtained to be able to provide you with useful input about the diagnosis or possible treatment.
