Here it is. I also have a very small patch on my right hand. And now husband has a small patch on his hand. I seem to have infected him.
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 2 years ago.
This looks like eczema.
It does not look like something you could infect someone with.
Take it to your doctor.
A sample can be sent to the lab to rule out fungal.
Both can be treated easily.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
