A hand rash, also called hand dermatitis or hand eczema, may be caused by many things. Hand rashes are extremely common and can start with dry, chapped hands that later become patchy, red, scaly and inflamed.Numerous items can irritate skin: overexposure to water, too much dry air, soaps, detergents, solvents, cleaning agents, chemicals, rubber/latex gloves and even ingredients in skin and personal care products.Hand eczema is not contagious. It is important that you have your rash checked by a dermatologist who can do the appropriate diagnosing and testing.Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved, injected treatment to temporarily remove frown lines and crow’s feet. Injections have been used safely and effectively since the 1980s to treat many ophthalmologic disorders, neurological disorders and a variety of other conditions. It has become a popular treatment for reversing the visible signs of aging.Often your skin will get better by changing products or avoiding an ingredient completely. Your dermatologist will try to find out what substance in your everyday routine could be causing or contributing to the problem.

Your dermatologist may offer a combination of methods to heal your skin. It is possible you may need an oral antibiotic if an infection is present. Medicated ointment or cream may also be prescribed. Be certain not to use this in combination with other hand creams unless your doctor approves. If the prescribed treatment doesn’t seem to be helping, tell your doctor right away.Discuss with your dermatologist ways you can protect your hands, e.g. wearing vinyl gloves (rather than latex as some people are sensitive to latex), avoiding hand-washing dishes or clothes, wearing unlined leather gloves in cool weather to prevent dry and chapped skin, etc.
