dermatitis caused by scratch

Hello there,

A little over a year ago my girlfriend of the time scratched my thumb with her fingernail, ever since I've had a recurring dry patch where she scratched me which is itchy, scaly and flakes often.

Can anybody tell me what this might be? I've been able to control it to a degree by ensuring I properly dry the region of skin after washing my hands but recently this has stopped helping.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!
