Hello! I get this kind of lump that is itchy and after scratching it it turned a bit red. Also I have thi thing between the fingers which never leaves. Would you consider it an eczema? Whare other thing could it be? Thank you!

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Thanks for asking

Yes it is eczema

You need to use Vaseline and a steroid crream like 1% Hydrocortisone cream

If that does not work then you will need a prescription strength steroid cream or other immune modulator like Pimecrolimus cream

Thanks! Can it go without the use of steroid?

A very little chance that it will go out without any cream
