Is there anything i can use on it?
It is on my little finger next to my wedding/engagement ring.
The rings have been moved to my right hand now as i'm sure that is what is causing it.
I am keeping my hands dry etc but it is driving me up the wall and even affecting my sleep.
Not sure what i can put on it as i'm 18 weeks pregnant.
Any ideas?

Have you had this before, and do you have some hydrocortisone cream.

I have really bad exczema, and was told by my doctor that a small amount of steroids on your skin will only mean minute amounts in your blood, and so is fine.

But you might want to ring NHS direct to check that, what with me not being a medic!
