Dermatitis: Sounds like dermatitis. You may have an allergy to one of the metals in your ring (often it's to nickel, which is in many metals used for inexpensive jewellery). Or it could be irritation from water sitting under the ring after washing hands. Remove your ring until the spots heal. You can use mild hydrocortisone cream 2x/day for up to 2 weeks. Dry the skin completely after washing your hands. ...Read more

You did not mention whether you have had unprotected sex during the past 40 weeks and thus a negative test at 27 weeks cannot tell you whether you have contracted HIV or not. Nonetheless if it is from another viral infection or a drug reaction, the rash should resolve in ...Read more

I have little red itchy oozing bumbs on both sides of my hands. They are spreading to my fingers. I have dark itchy spots all over my body also. Help!

Red oozing bumps: You may have hand dermatitis which is a form of excema. It is made worse by washing your hands alot. You need to see a dermatologist to see if I am right and to have it treated with prescriptions creams. I cannot speculate on your other spots, unless you shower alot with a harsh soaop and do not use a moisturizer. You could also have folliculitis if some of the bumps look like pimples. ...Read more
