It started almost a week ago. I woke up with a red, rough, itchy, and red skin on my hand, at first, it seemed normal to me. Later when I came home, the skin started to hurt so I applied some Neosporin + Pain Relief. After I 4 or 5 days, I was asleep but I was also itching my hand, when I woke up, there was small bumps. I rubbed some kind of medicine that stops itchy skin. When I applied it, it was itching really badly!! So I had to itch it since I couldn't resist! I used a cotton swab and scratch it [I know I wasn't suppose to do that] Soon there was more bumps on my hand!! Now I don't know what should I do. What kind of cream or medicine should I apply to my skin (on the hand) and what is it I'm having?? Also when my two hands put together the red skin looks like a star. I'm kind of scared. Please tell me what's wrong!! Shocked

Hi Juliety....The only way that you can find out what is wrong is to see a doctor...You could have a allergy or whatever....I know that ice put on an itchy area will stop the itch...Hope this helps...Take care...
