You definitely have some peeling of the skin at the fingertips as well as some redness in the area. There are many things that can cause this sort of thing, including vitamin/mineral deficiencies, an allergic reaction to something (contact dermatitis), exposure to an irritant, some infections (especially slow-growing fungal infections of the skin), or a skin condition such as eczema
. This kind of condition can be very distracting and problematic from a cosmetic standpoint, and you undoubtedly want to get to the bottom of this right away. A dermatologist
would be the best person to start with for an evaluation of not only your fingertips but also the rest of your skin and your health history. You may have other skin findings or symptoms that will help identify what is causing these changes on your hands. In addition to identifying what is causing this, a dermatologist will also be able to recommend the best treatment, whether an oral or topical medication. Determining which cream or lotion is likely to be most effective for your dry and peeling skin will depend upon what is causing this. Hopefully your hands will be back to normal soon, without any recurrence in future!
