Hello,

I have some sort of rash on my fingers and thumb and I am unaware of what caused it and what it could be. Below is a link to the picture of it.

If you could help me figure out what this is and how to stop it it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Herding,

The vast majority of rashes, limited to just a small part of the body, are due to contact with something (contact dermatitis). But, they can also be due to an infectious process (viral and fungal more common than bacterial).

Usually, if the rash was from something like a medication (drug eruption), the rash would be more widespread.


Unfortunately, you may need to see a dermatologist, if the redness continues. You can try the over-the-counter medications for rashes which have cortisone in them. But, again, if these do not work, you will probably have to see someone who can determine the underlying cause of your rash.

Good luck.

Thanks, I have already been to a doctor and he prescribed me Dermol topical cream (0.05%). If it doesn't clear up in a week or so I will probably just go back to the doctor and seek further help. Thanks again.
