I have visited with several doctors and they really dont know what it is or they dont think it is that much to be worried about.

I have had a spreading something on my had for the past year. It started in my dominate hand pointer finger at the tip. It is only on the palm side. It has only made it to the middle of my hand up my middle finger and to the first nuckel on my ring finger. When it started it would just itch a little then if formed these little supersmall like pin point blisters. but it does not do any of those any more. now it just keeps getting dry and cracking out in the seames of my hands. there is a little color discoloration or texture change from the infected area to the non. My other hand is just fine.

I work in a mechanic shop and i am around harsh chemicals every day. I have worked there for 11 years and have had no problems ever. I have started eating healther and trying to keep my hands clean thinking it could be a chemical reaction. but has not helped. the doctors thought it my be fungal but being around chemicals all day there is no way it can be a fungal infection. i tried their creams but they did not help either. I used to have calaces on my fingers from using them all the time and what ever it is that is on my had it removes the calaces. then dries the skin. I have changed hand washing soaps several times thinking that could be it. but no help. If it was a chemical that had got induced into my skin you would think that after a year that my body would have removed it. thought cuts, sweating or my organs.

any help would be appreciated. or any one i could email or send pics to for a diagnosis.
