Possibly!: Eczema is dry, allergic, sensitive skin, and can run in families. Please see my post 'eczema and you' on healthtap for full treatment suggestions. I hope it improves quickly!

Rash located on back of left hand between thumb and index finger and back to wrist. Is this bad?

Rash located on back of left hand between thumb and index finger and back to wrist. Is this bad?

Bothersome: Does it itch, is it bubbly, or ooze? Does it hurt? Are you left handed? Is it bumpy raised and red? Really not enough info to answer you but it is in the distribution where you would grab something and possibly touched as irritant. If that is what it is, try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream or an over the counter Hydrocortisone. If it does not clear see your doctor who can see it with real eyes for proper dxrx.

As young as you r: I would guess without seeing it that its a possible contact dermatitis, but need to see picture and get more history, you can try OTC hydrocortisone, if not clear in a week or two see derm

After playing a gig with my band I get a bad rash around my eyes and left hand. Pretty sure this is sweat related as I have longish hair. How to stop?

After playing a gig with my band I get a bad rash around my eyes and left hand. Pretty sure this is sweat related as I have longish hair. How to stop?

Switch To A Theremin: How to stop it? Get a haircut, buy a suit and tie and get a day job! OK, OK, never mind. Do you play guitar? If so, clean the neck and change the strings. Tie your hair back and wipe face and around eyes frequently. Wash or rinse-off both immediately after playing Maybe use an antiperspirant on your forehead and palms of your hands. Maybe try a thin fingerless glove on your left hand. Or just live with it

It's not working.: You are using a corticosteroid cream, helpful in eczema's and general dermatitis. If not effective this suggests the rash may be due to something else, perhaps a fungal infection or a symptom of another disease process. See a dermatologist, get a skin scraping and then you will know for sure what is the cause and the appropriate treatment.

Carpal tunnel: It certainly could be carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in your wrist which makes your fingers go numb. In some people it is also associated with spasm. Rest, heat, splint. If no change, see a hand surgeon.

Why restlessness in left hand?

Why restlessness in left hand?

Generic answer: As has been noted, you could have shaking of left hand at rest, which might be Parkinson's. or focal neurological event like a stroke, but if when performing action, might represent cerebellar problem. The focality needs investigation, and some testing would be of value, but a neurological referral would be best way to start.
