On my right hand i have dry skin which occasionally cracks and very occasionally gets little red bumps that itch quite a bit.
The dry skin doesn't hurt, it only effects my left hand- upon which i wear no jewelery, use for anything more than my right and have no known allergies to anything.
I've had the dry skin as long as i can remember but it seems to get worse and better in the space of a couple of hours sometimes going for a few days then flairing up and going down again as quickly?

the only other thing of note is my ring finger nail on the same hand where the nail has gone funny. I've posted about this in the correct forum but thought it may play a part so ill leave a picture of the nail here also.

Hi John, It looks like you are experiencing a contact dermatitis condition. There are 2 types of Contact Dermatitis which shows nearly same symptoms. Irritant Contact Dermatitis (ICD) occurs when people touch something they're sensitive which is a common type on the other side there is Allergic Contact Dermatitis (ACD) that occurs when people touch something they're allergic. Have you tried to check a specialist? As of this time, i will recommend for you not to take any medicines because it might trigger the condition of your skin. However you can try to check a natural therapies that are proven and safe.
