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) isnt 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) isnt 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

For awhile now I have had a rash between 2 of my fingers. I have ecsema and I know its not that. It itches sometimes, any ideas of what it might be?

Still may be eczema: Eczema on the fingers and hands doesn't have to look like the dry, crackly surface skin texture of eczema elsewhere. Fingers can have itchy flesh-colored bumps, called dishydrotic eczema or dishydrosis. The treatment is as in eczema, with Hydrocortisone cream 3 times a day for a week. . . And if the rash worsens or isn't better, one should see a primary care doctor or dermatologist for evaluation. ...Read more
