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??

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

Would the CO2 laser I'm getting for raised acne scars get rid of the redness. Skin turns red with slightest rubbing or touching...

No: The CO2 laser will not address the redness of your skin. Redness is usually due to telangiectasias, flushing, or rosacea. A different laser wavelength would be necessary to reduce redness (i.e., Pulsed dye lasers, Intense pulsed light, etc.). In fact, your redness will be slightly increased during the healing process. ...Read more

I am experiencing skin rash (quality: itchiness, blisters, flaking or scaling). : Skin redness or irritation. Not contagious. Rash 3 weeks Original rash looks like it's healing but skin around it is red and raised with tiny clear fluid blisters?

It is typical for a rash to clear and have blisters left over; they are tiny areas of inflammation fluid left over from the active rash process. It sounds like it is resolving.
