Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,
Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you.
Thank you for providing the pictures.
May I suggest you purchase over the counter Tinactin and over the counter 1% Hydrocortisone Cream. Apply one and gently rub in, then apply the second. Do this twice daily and cover with non-stick pad or large band-aide. Do this for 10-14 days. If it does not totally resolve then you may need prescription strength medication, but this usually works. Do you have any contact with any chemicals, soil or are your hands in a wet environment? The answers will help me help you more efficiently.
Then the medications/treatment I suggested should work well for you.
Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.
I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
How is your thumb? Have you started the medications I suggested?
Yes, you need both to affect healing.
