Painful cracked & dry knuckles, red, burning on one hand only. Happens every fall & winter but only on right hand. What would cause this?
Eczema will get you: At a very young age, and it continues throughout your life. Sometimes a certain lotion or chemical in the lotion will make it worse. Try to use different unscented moisturizers, even prescription ones, to see if it would help alleviate the problem. I would put the moisturizer on several times a day. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
I have a little bump on my knuckle. It is pinhead sized and flesh colored and not very raised off the skin. Result of my dry skin?

Painful red bumps on knuckles. Happening on &off for years. What could this be? It doesn't itch, its not dry skin, nor is it hard in nature.
On my right knuckle, I have a very dry, red skin and it's itchy and rough, what could it be? I also have it on my left knuckle but it is not as bad
Could be many: Things including but not limited to lichen simplex chronicus. Try covering it with a bandaid every day after putting on some aquaphor, if it gets better, then continue but if not it needs to be seen by dermatologist
