Odd skin rash

I know this is a shot in the dark, but I figured I'd try. Since about October of 2009, i have gotten this rash on my left hand on the upper knuckle. I thought it was dry skin because it would go away when I used Udderly Smooth. But a few days later it would come back. Now fast forward to today, it's not going away, and it's unbearably itchy. I am posting a pic so that you might be able to help identify it. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't have the money to go to a Dr. to find out what it could possibly be.

Re: Odd skin rash

It could be either a dermatitis or fungal infection. Generally, you could try a hydrocortisone ointment if it's a dermatitis. You could try an over the counter ointment antifungal like Lamisil if it's fungal, but it would be best to see a doctor.
