Hi doctor,

I am a 21 year old female. I have been getting white fluid from the infected part of my finger. I do not know how it got infected. I have this for the last one month. I used antibacterial ointments, but still it is not getting healed rather it is getting more and peeling away.

Thank you doctor,

No, I am not wearing any ring on that finger. I used Fluticasone cream IP. No, I do not have any other itching problem.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • It is hand eczema (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Avoid contact with detergent.
  • Use Momate-F (Mometasone furoate and Fusidic acid) cream twice daily or Diprovate-G (Betamethasone dipropionate and Zinc sulfate) cream twice daily.
  • Olesoft cream or Aquasoft Max cream (moisturizers) apply twice a day for 15 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.
  • Follow up after two to three weeks, if symptoms still persist.
