I am a 23-year-old male. My hands remain dry always. And I could notice red spots on the back of my left hand during bedtime. These spots last for about 30 minutes to one hour. They are not itchy or painful. I am having this issue for more than seven years. I am allergic to dust and mites. Is my problem because of an allergy?
My current medications are Bupropion 300 mg, Zyrtec, and Omeprazole 20 mg.

Thanks for attaching the photographs (attachments removed to protect the patient’s identity). Your skin problem is allergic contact dermatitis. It is advisable to apply moisturizer immediately after washing your hands to avoid its recurrence. And also, apply Halobetasol cream twice daily over the affected area.
This kind of dermatitis will worsen with time because the allergy cells that create such a reaction get potent day by day. The only way to prevent them is to avoid the allergen, and apply moisturizers to prevent the direct penetrations of allergens into the skin can be largely avoided.
