I have a rash of some sort on my wedding finger! What should I do to get rid of it? I can't where my ring.

Eczema.: Often this is eczema. It may be caused by the ring itself or irritation to things that get trapped under the ring such as lotion or soap. Could try wearing the ring on another finger to check that. Avoid soaps, detergents, solvents and consider using topical Hydrocortisone twice a day although it may be too weak to resolve your rash. In that case see doc. ...Read more

My daughter has a rash in between her fingers where the finger connects to the next finger/hand. Lamisil (terbinafine) isn't working so is this not a ringworm?

My daughter has a rash in between her fingers where the finger connects to the next finger/hand. Lamisil (terbinafine) isn't working so is this not a ringworm?

Maybe: Ringworm/fungal infection is occasionally found between fingers and toes. This could be a fungal infection that is resistant to lamisil (terbinafine). However, eczema can also imitate fungal infection, and cause redness and peeling and itching. You may want your doctor to take a fine scraping of rash and send to lab for microscopy before further treatment. You can fine tune the treatment, knowing the cause. ...Read more

And if the rash worsens or isn't better, one should see a primary care doctor or dermatologist for evaluation. ...Read more

I had 2 blood tests for vasculitis and they came out negative, but I still have similar vasculitis rashes in my fingers and toes. Can I rule it out?

I had 2 blood tests for vasculitis and they came out negative, but I still have similar vasculitis rashes in my fingers and toes. Can I rule it out?

Need more info: Vasculitis is caused by inflammation of blood vessels. The primary diagnostic criteria include signs, symptoms, and tissue sample showing blood vessel inflamation in the form of biopsy. There are some blood tests which support the possibility of vasculitis. However these tests such as anca, are never diagnostic by themselves. There are vasculitis mimics such as thrombotic (blood clot) diseases. ...Read more

Show this to a doc: Doctors are professionals and they will not 'judge' you for coming to them with a problem. You need a diagnosis. This could be an STD, but it could easily be something else - so there is no reason to suffer. Besides, this disease may become worse-so you want to take action now. If you show a photo of the rash on Health Tap, maybe we could better guide you. Don't be afraid - you need help. ...Read more
