Moisturizer: Apply a moisturizer several times daily. The moisturizer should contain no fragrance. A thin layer of an antibiotic ointment may be used three time daily. Use gloves while cleaning and please follow up with your PCP.

Dyshidrotic eczema: sounds like dyshidrosis, a type of eczema that often occurs between fingers and sometime toes. pts usually get attacks periodically with stress and seasonal changes. Suggest seeing a dermatologist to confirm, but usually mid-high potency steroid creams help along with cold water soaks. Once in a while, an Id reaction to a fungus on another part of the body e.g. feet may cause a similar rash.
