If it were me I would not want my hands to improve too much until your rhematologist sees them. Can you manage 'till then ?

I had pre RA a steroid cream and nothing worked only prednislone after being diagnosed RA. So yes trying to stay off all remedies apart from vaseline and olive oil to keep them calm till 9th.

It could also possibly be contact dermatitis. I've had something similar looking on my hands pre RA and that's what it was, it was very sore, GP prescribed some cream and it cleared up (can't remember what). Hope it's better soon, keep some photos for your rheumy appointment just in case though.

He has seen but he thinks RA side effect but even he has said wait till rheumy appointment as he is desperately trying to keep me off anything that will stop rheumy seeing me in full flight flare!

Olive oil is good (vit.E) but Aloe Vera plant is the best. Everyone of us should have at home to cut fresh and use it. I hope it's not psoriasis but allergy from dish detergent or other household cleaning agents.
