Hi doctor,

There are multiple cracks in the palm with pain. If I touch anything, I get a wound. I can see that the wound surface is hard and blackish. What is this?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From the description provided, it seems that you could be having eczema or psoriasis.

Right now, just use a good emollient like Cetaphil Dam over hands multiple times a day and apply Cosvate G cream (combination of Clobetasol propionate and Gentamicin sulfate) two to three times over hands.

Further management would depend upon the response and exact underlying cause of the disease.

Also, use a mild soap like Cetaphil to wash hands. Avoid exposure to detergents, hard soaps, chemicals, etc.

Visit a dermatologist in person for physical evaluation and further management.
