Hi
I have small raised, itchy rash bumps that have appeared initially on the palms of my hands then on my thimbs and wrists. They have developed over a week and make the skin o my hands and arms ssitive. I have taken anti histamine tablets and used creams but they are persisting.
Can you advise please?

Hi John and sorry for the delay This sounds like an inflammatory eczema problem and if you haven't tried a combination of calendula cream and a cortisone cream that's what I'd suggest. If that doesn't help you'd need prescription tacrolimus cream
