I work in a hospital, lots of hand sani. Two rings on one finger & now have red, raised skin, flaking, & itchy. no rings for a week now. Remedy??

Contact dermatitis: I think the problem is contact dermatitis. Something from the hand sanitizer reacted with the metal on your rings to create an irritative substance. Without seeing pictures, it will be hard to tell. Consider TTYD or using HealthTap Prime. In the mean time, avoid rings, use soap (not alcohol) cleaners, & use moisturizing cream - Lubriderm or similar. Also, wear gloves to protect your skin! Thanks. ...Read more
