This is in all: Liklihood hand dermatitis or eczema. People can be genetically susceptible, or be in frequent contact with an irritant, or have allergies. Irritants include water, detergents, solvents, cold, heat, friction. Dermatologist can pinpoint cause. Then minimize contact with irritants, use non-soap cleanser, minimize water/dry well, use moisturizers, possibly cotton gloves and topical steroids. Good luck

Ck your post op meds: If you have palmer rash from post-op, and were placed on antibiotics, or other meds, you must consider if this could be a possibility or not. In either case, contact your foot doctor, or surgeon, and let her/him know about it, so they can advise you further. This is best done in person. You don't want this getting out of hand, and compromising your health.

Multiple causes: The most common rash in her age group on the palms and soles is eczema but other possibilities include fungal infections and variations of psoriasis or a few rare conditions. Use only unscented soaps for handwashing and see a physician to see if a topical steroid cream is needed to treat the rash.

Itchy rashes: One common rash that starts on the hands and spreads to the rest of the body is called scabies. It is caused by mites and is passed by contact. A dermatologist could do a scraping to determine this and treat it. There are many other causes such as allergy to things you come in contact with or eczema, but if someone else you know has similar symptoms, you should both be checked for scabies.

I have a very itchy rash on my left palm. I have had it for about 6 months, my doctor just told me by looking at it, that it is herpes, is that possible?

Unlikely: Herpes would not be present for 6 months. I would suspect contact dermatitis from continually touching something. But yes herpes can be diagnosed by simply looking at the lesions.
