Can someone please help me identify this rash on my daughter's hand?

Here are some photos of it: http://tinyurl.com/bhn7l9

It started as a few red patches three days ago and has progressed to this. It is excruciatingly painful for her and so far we've had no luck with over-the-counter meds.

Thanks,
Aaron

  • This looks like a skin condition called dishydrotic eczema, or dermatitis. I have this condition. They appear as blister-like on the fingers and swell up, but will eventually go away. Stress is the major reason why I get it. I would see a dermatologist to get some prescription medication to alleviate the pain. Hope this helps.
