First can you describe the rash and how long you've had it?

Hi Dr. Chip,
I've had the rash for about 10 months, started while I was pregnant. It is over my knuckles and fingers, usually dry around the knuckles but small red sores between & along the fingers.
Thanks,

I take it the hydrocortisone and Lanolin didn't help? Has a doctor looked at it?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
They both help to a point but do not get rid of it completely. Dr. hasn't looked at it.
Homeopathy Expert: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
OK--there are a few things to try that won't be a problem with your baby. My first choice would be calendula cream. Then there's oatmeal baths, chamomile and witch hazel oils, tea tree oil, and olive oil. If those aren't helpful, it would be best to have a doctor look at this and prescribe either an appropriate cortisone cream or perhaps an antifungal cream in case this isn't eczema and more of a fungal condition.

I have actually briefly tried Calendula cream as I use it for nappy rash, didn't seems to help, how would you that it if fungal?
Homeopathy Expert: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
The sores and the fact that the calenula and the cortisone creams didn't completely help. It could be an inflammatory eczema but it sounds more fungal. In that case, over the counter Lamisil cream may help.

Is there a natural way I can treat it, rather than a pharmaceutical?
Homeopathy Expert: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago
A papaya or mustard seed plaster may do the trick.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
