Rash on hands

I have a rash that appears around my knuckles and fingers, it has been a few years where it would appear every month or so, but now it’s every day or so. Does anyone have any idea on what it could be?

Re: Rash on hands

Check you're not exposing yourself to the same sort of toxins on a daily basis. Have you started doing something more frequently recently than before?

It's interesting that it appears every month and then just goes away. Is it around the same time each month?

Re: Rash on hands

I get a similar rash on my hands when I've been exposed to bleach.

Are you using any chemicals or had contact with something that has had chemicals used on? Because your rash looks like you're allergic to some kind of chemical.

I don't know where you're working, but whatever you are being exposed to is what is causing your rash. I could be wrong, but it is worth investigating.

Definitely odd - I would see a dermatologist. It could be a product that you're using or a sensitivity to something that you are unaware of.

Re: Rash on hands

Just signed up here , I get this. Worked in a good production factory for 4 yrs, already have eczema but dr seems to think on hands it’s dermatitis. I find only thing helps - Germolene.

Re: Rash on hands

Chemicals can cause such a rash.

I'd find out what chemicals you've been exposed to and try to eradicate them from your lifestyle, if you can.
