What is this rash on my hand?

I have a rash on the palm of my left hand that has spread to my upper left ring finger and now to my thumb. It starts as a raised bump that looks like a pimple. The pimple gets hard, flat and red. It then dries up into a white spot and then falls off or I remove it. As the spot dries out, the skin itches. I went to the doctor and she prescribed an ointment, which I used for about a week, but it didn't work. Help! Thanks!

I have almost exactly same Rash/Corn/Wart on my middle finger for last couple of years. As you described "It starts as a raised bump that looks like a pimple. The pimple gets hard, flat and red. It then dries up into a white spot and then falls off or I remove it."


I used to wear a ring in this finger 6-7 yrs ago and the rash is inside on hand, where the ring used to be. I haven't discussed this with physician yet, but should I be concerned?


Any advice?
