In brief: Topical steroids

Topical steroids creams or ointments are effective treatments for hand eczema.
Sometimes a contact allergy can cause hand dermatitis, so it may be helpful to consult a dermatologist or allergist.

In brief: Itchy hand eczema

Be sure you have been diagnosed by a doctor. An itchy rash on your hand could be contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis, or a fungal infection, etc.
If it's contact, you want to try to find out what to avoid touching. If atopic dermatitis, you want to check out your food and inhalant allergies and treat them. For the itch itself, use antihistamines, corticosteroid or calcineurin inhibitor cream.
