Annoying, itchy, tiny, white, clear fluid-filled blisters!!!

Left-hand ring finger

Left-hand ring finger

Left-hand ring finger
Left-side of foot
left-hand index finger

I first thought it was a bug bite or something and my skin reacted. I first noticed them on the side of my right ring finger. I scratched the very few tiny blisters. Then I started getting more and more of them all over the webbings of my fingers on both hands. I had a few on my wrist and below my right thumb. Then I got some on the webbings of my toes, on my toes, under my fingernails (on the skin), and the sides of my feet. I just went to my doctor's and he told me it's scabies. I highly doubt it's scabies. This was the same doctor who misdiagnosed my brother's ulcer for a fissure. I'm getting a second opinion tomorrow. I'd hate to pay for treatment of something I don't even have. They're so itchy though...And it doesn't help that it's been really REALLY hot lately. I also noticed yesterday, when I washed my hands, that was when my fingers started to get itchy.


Katrina's Reply: Hi Lisa. Sorry you're having to go through this. It does sound like Dyshidrosys. Let us know what they say when you go for the second opinion appointment.

new to this NEW
by: Lucia

Hi, I've started having this about a month ago. Nothing on my feet, but only on the top of my fingers. One or max two here and there. Really itchy and no idea why they are there. I haven't been stressed at all at that time. I'm stressing now because of changes at my job, but not sure this was the cause of these. They do itch when they first appear, then only occasionally start itching again. Some of them disappear, but reappear again. ATM I've got 7 of them. It doesn't look nice and healthy as I'm presenter and I do loads with my hands, so would rather get rid of them. Thank you for any kid of help !

13 years later, still googling this! NEW
by: Anonymous

i gave birth to my daughter 13 years ago and it's been annoying me ever since that I still did not know what is that rash i developed two days post partum. it was exactly the same discription: annoying severely itchy bubbles around my fingers and toes and webs and it was so itchy I used to cry just from frustration cause it wouldnt stop and I couldnt focus on breast feeding or dealing with my episiotomy and all of that post partum drama. I am so curious that i am still googling it 13 years later. I think it mostly fist dyshidrosis, rash of celiac you would have other symptoms and sabies is different.

Blister NEW
by: Anonymous

From reading there are definitely different types of issues going on. The palm and foot breakouts are different then the finger blisters that itch like crazy. You need to go to other websites on hand blisters to pinpoint. Mine are definitely sun related it only takes a few minutes,can happen in the winter if it is a sunny day too. If I wear gloves in sun I am ok. There were some definite good comments on here thanks. There was one thing that was related to having Indian liniage,or darker skin for one type of blister, and can show up other areas

HZ related NEW
by: Alexis

I've had these evil little bumps on my fingers and toes since my husband got shingles (HZ). He gets them, but only on his back. If I pop the ones on my hands they leave extremely dry cracking, so I try to let them be. My doctor gave me Valtrex for them since it's still in the herpes family. It works within hours, and typically the issue is gone inside of two days. That helps a ton in the summer when it's hot as the devil outside, or when I get stressed and they decide to come back. Before that, I used witch hazel. It stings a little, but it took the itching right out and also sped up the resolution time.

fluid filled bubbles NEW
by: Anonymous

I've been getting these on and off of 35 years. (I'm 51 now). No doctor was ever able to help me with these. I swear these do spread if you pop them. Usually I just pop them and keep a alcohol pad on them for a few minutes. That seems to work well. If I get a lot of them on my hands I pop all of them at once and dip my hands in Clorox. Extreme yes but it works well for me. By the way I do believe these are caused by stress. I haven't seen one in months and I got a new boss last week. all of a sudden they are back.

Itchy bumps with fluid NEW
by: Anonymous

I've ha these since about 18, 32 now. What im tryng to say is, i was diagnosed with SARCOIDOSIS. Some doctors think its hereditary some dont. The diseasee is autoimmune which means your body attacks the skin and sometimes the internal organs(normally the lungs first). Its not a deadly disease but the complications like having these bump in your lungs can cause scarring which makes you prone to disease of th lungs like pneumonia which can kill you. (Basically secondary infection) U can ask you doctor about it but many have barely heard of it, yet know how to treat it but you can ask about a skin sample from the bumps and have it tested for sarcoid. This disease is more common in African Americans, Mexicans, puerto ricans basically people with natural darker complexion.

I get these occasionally
by: Anonymous

I get these exact things occasionally, but only on my fingers or thumb. Ive gotten them off and on for years (very rarely). I've always called them "nerve bumps" bf they almost always appear after something stressful. Just don't pop them or they hurt like heck & can get infected.

I'm not worried about them and only happened on this site bc I'm laying in bed bore and decided to Google to see if these bumps actually had a name. Couldn't find anything besides skin disorders or celiac etc, of which I don't have.

Katrina's Reply: Yes, stress can definitely trigger the condition.

Dishydrotic exzema
by: Shannon

I get this too, and it is typically one of two things. It is either contact dermatitis, in which case you need to figure out what you are reacting to, or like me, it is dishydrotic exzema (also known as pomphlox).

First, this seems to get worse in the summer time, so that might be a good clue.

Here is what works for me, I have been dealing with this for about 12 yrs now.

Feet: The keys are to keep them both moisturized AND dry! I use a heavy foot cream whenever I get out of the shower, and use spray anti-persperant on my feet before I put shoes on. Moisturized and dry.

Hands: The hands are a little harder, but I definitely find that keeping them moisturized helps prevent the blisters from popping up. I use a good hand cream before bed every night, and use lotion after any tasks that may have irritated my hands.

The itching can drive you crazy! You want to refrain from popping the blisters if you can, because each open blister is an opportunity for infection. I am a realist however, and living with this mess, I know sometimes popping the stupid things is the only way to stop the incessant itching! Just try to keep them clean and covered if you can, and use a sterile needle to do it, to create as small of an opening as possible.

Personally, I haven't had much luck with prescriptions that docs have given me, but I think the best was betamethazone cream, it's a steroid cream, it helped a little.

Best of luck, and everyone with this annoying problem had my sympathies.

Katrina's Reply: Thanks for sharing, Shannon. I've had good luck using tea tree oil on mine. I hate when they morph from a bunch of small blisters into larger ones.

Years of these bumps
by: Meg

Noticed I had these before puberty. My mom thought they were warts but the wart medication never work on these ones.(It worked on my other ones.)It appears to be only on my right hand.The bumps aren't together but scattered on the palm and fingers. They itch badly at times but not often.

Katrina's Reply: Meg, that's great that the itching hasn't been that bad for you. It is usually the worst part of this condition.

My experience
by: Anonymous

Hi there. I have something similar too. Started on one side of my foot and got popped, now spreading all over in small clusters. These things are INFECTIOUS. I suspect my family passed it to me cos they had it prior and we walk around barefooted.
Some things I use/do which kinda helps:
1. Applied medication I use: DERMASOME (Betamethasone Valerate) 0.05%-0.1%
This REALLY helped a lot. Relieved itching instantly for me. Thing is, applied area (skin) thins out. For me, the skin even broke (the annoying bumps are gone though) and its kinda dry. So now I use it with an AQUEOUS CREAM (cetomacrogol 1000, white soft paraffin) and it doesn't dry out that much.

2. CHANGE YOUR SOCKS. BRING LIKE 2 EXTRA PAIRS OUT.
Hygiene definitely plays a part in all this. Speaking from experience, (I wear sports shoes) changing socks at lunch break did help with the itching and spreading of the bumps. I got lazy these days and it started getting bad again :(

3. Wash your feet/infected area! Scrub them! But don't get them too dry. I use detol soap with moisturizing effect to both kill the germs and make sure my feet don't get too dry. Dry skin= a breakage in skin= bacteria gets in easy= bumps/vesicles. I'm speaking from experience. I know its troublesome but it does matter. Wash your hands 100% with soap afterwards. I even throw in some mouthwash lol gotta kill all the germs.

4. Once, I had them on my palms and fingertips (got careless). Made sure my hands had minimal contact with my face. Wore gloves when washing my face. Don't let it spread!!

I was really so upset with my family for kinda infecting me and all but its kinda my fault too for knowing and yet not taking precautions. Get ur family to wear slippers if your infected area is on ur feet. Pus on the floor WILL spread the disease to them.
Dont get frustrated. Many of us like this too. Hope we all gws. Mwaks.

Katrina's Reply: Dyshidrosis is not contagious. Also, scrubbing the blisters is not the best way to go about cleansing them.

Personal Experience
by: Anonymous

I went through this problem myself. It was the worst on my feet and between my toes, and at fiestate i thought that it was athletes foot, until I noticed all of the tiny little water blisters, so flat and small they were almost impossible to notice. I tried Lotrimin and essential oils and anything I could think of, but nothing seemed to help. It would occasionally pop up on the sides of my fingers, or on my palm just a little. The only thing that helped me was using a sterilized needle to keep all of the blisters drained, and immediately afterwords washing and applying Teatree and lavender oils. In all actuality, it may have just run its course, but this did seem to help. I'm also finding that a year later, around the same time as the first occurence, it's showing up again.

other possibility
by: ezra

Definitely sounds like it could be some kind of contact dermatitis, but another possibility is that it could be Dermatitis Herpetiformis (a rash caused by celiac disease). I have celiac and get some similar bumps on my hands when I accidentally have wheatā€” it's generally accompanied by a little more prominence in scar tissue (for me, but idk if that's common) and pain/itchiness. They'll sometimes pop, but that doesn't relieve it and they come back. Usually, the best thing I can do is put hydrocortisone cream on them and wait. Good luck and I hope you figure it out!

Itchy blister filled with fluid Inbetween fingers
by: Itchsleeplessmedicalsucks

When I was pregnant I had a similar itch on my foot and on top of my fingers my thighs and stomach, the itch is so bad I want to die. Just use Vicks do not scratch it or you will get a stretch mark. It's normal when your skin is stritching.

Now I am suffering from similar itch but it's located in between fingers. It started from my ring finger on the left, I went to urgent care but I was told it looks like a contact dermatitis, they give me an out of the counter cream it helps the itch but it's making my skin so thin. So I went to the natural food store and got myself, Tea tree oil and grandpas sulfur soap for acne. It works for awhile and got rid of it completely for 5 days I finally have a clear skin but now it's back againšŸ˜­ I have read so many articles about all the people who are suffering from this condition and I came acrossed with 1 military guy who had been suffering from this condition for 10 years and doctors couldn't give him answers so he tried Clorox bleach and he said it's the only thing that help him.

Today, I went to target store to get eucerin excema lotion, I also soak my hand in bleach with ice it feels so good and helps the itch a lot. After soaking my hand I booth the liquid of my hand and I applied Tylenol cold and flu medication after it dried out I applied the eucerin lotion. It's amazing that no dr. Can give us proper diagnoses with this problem. I wear gloves in my sleep because I'm not sure how contiguous I am. We should have a minute facility to where a person can get tested for any problems so we get properly diagnose by our physician. The problem is everything is over price and to get proper test it has to be ordered by a physician the who medical shit is really itching mešŸ˜±

I had exactly this.. A couple of tiny blisters I popped.. within a few moths my both hands were a total messanger drove me crazy with the itching.
At the time I was using a well known washing up liquid.. my mum reminded me of the time I was using toothpaste from the same manufacturer I would get very angry spots on my cheeks. I changed the washing up liquid and it took months but it did clear up.
I noticed when I did have the rash that peeling potatoes or chopping tomatoes it would aggravate it immensely.

I have that too.
by: Anonymous

I've been getting these throughout my life. They usually pop up and then go away after a few days. Sometimes they seem red and sometimes more clear. I had one a month ago and burned it off with a therapik. The heat made it turn into a blister and then went away a week later. I got another one in the same spot today and burned it off again. I'll see if it comes back again and keep and eye on it. The blister completely relieves all itching and doesn't hurt much at all.

Medicine--
by: bhagwat

I am suffering from the same problem. after so many years my doctors suggested me STAMINE FORT medicine. It helps a lot. the clear fluid disappears after two or three doses (one table a day). But they will keep on coming after a month or so. so I again take the medicine and the cycle will repeat. Some time detergents and food habits needs to be monitored. My condition is aggravated with excessive mental stress and touching detergents. so now I avoid both Please consult your doctor before you take the above mentioned medicine.

Dyshidrotic eczema

I have the same thing. I usually find them on the side of my fingers or on the heel of my foot. Whenever I squeeze them, clear fluid comes out. It makes me feel a lot better and it stops the itching for awhile. I just don't know how to get rid of them! I've had eczema my whole life and found those little bumps on me a couple of years ago. I've been doing some research about it and it's most likely dyshidrotic eczema. I hope this helped you!

blisters
by: Anonymous

I have had these for years, they come once in a while, every other year, under my foot (the right one, never the left ) and a little bit on my fingers. Its very annoying and itchy. This time is on my foot on the side. For some reason, it is true that they appear during the summer as far as I can remember. Also I think it could also be related to dairy. I am not 100% sure but it is interesting that most of these comments come back. Summer, dairy, stress, sweat from new shoes... All I know is I wanna take a needle and just pop them and put some alcohol because it's so itchy. I wish there was someone , a Dr that could have one straight answer/solution.
I will try to stop dairy for a week and see if there is a result. Then i will change my shoes, etc...

Food

Hi everyone !
I am reading all these comments and I had these for few years now and I really believe it is the food! Also for some people maybe shoes. I have noticed they came back when I got these new shoes. But someone mentioned gluten could be the problem. So Ima going to cut on that and see. Someone else mentioned dairy so I will try that after. Hopefully it helps. I don't know if anyone has noticed that some parts of the right foot are related to your stomach. Maybe it's just anxiety.

Have the same right now!
by: Lorna

Have the same on both hands right now! I have had them before but not as bad. Both hands feel prickly not itchy although if I scratch them it gets itchy.
I'm thinking this is linked to body being generally run down / trying to fight off infection - currently suffering a UTI and about to start an antibiotic.
The only other coincidence is we have had some good weather (for a change! ) and ive had some sun on my hands, but the spots didn't appear until a week after this (we are back to rain!).... and ive also had quite a number of midge bites on arms.
I looked up scabies after reading about that on this thread and it's definately not the same kind of spot - mine look exactly like pic above, tiny hard clear fluid filled.

I've been getting these for years, usually around my middle finger. I find they swell up with stress, so now I usually call them stress blisters.

So it's not just me? Phew!
by: SquishySquiddy

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who gets these little buggers! I'll notice that I'm scratching at a certain spot (almost always on my fingers, between the knuckles) a lot and when I look at it, lo and behold, there's a tiny little blister. It doesn't look like a "typical" blister with a red/pink base and a clearish top. It's more so just a little bump on the surface of the skin that unless it's popped, you wouldn't know it even had fluid in it. And it's always just a single one, never a cluster. I've also found that once it bursts, the itching stops and unless I'm rough and careless when bursting it, the spot heals within a matter of hours.
I'm more curious about what causes them because I don't think I've ever noticed a pattern as far as when I get them. Not diet, stress, getting my period, anything. It seems to be totally random. Could it still be a type of eczema, contact dermatitis, or whatever? These things drive me absolutely crazy!!

Gluten PEOPLE!!
by: Lori in the D

I was getting these for years. Tried to pinpoint it to something. My dr. Would give me an Rx that would help for the most part.
Had a slew of other symptoms: diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, possible MS, ocular mystenia gravis, chronic migraines, arthritis, etc., the list can go on and on! And I'm not kidding.
Turns out after a million tests over ten years (yes, 10yrs!) I have a gluten intolerance! As soon as I cut it out of my diet %100 it all went away!
You must cut it out entirely!! You can't just cut back, or eat it occasionally.
If you have been wondering why you feel horrible and no one can figure it out... Try going GLuten Free! It saved/changed my life.

Not the same
by: Anonymous

I think there are a couple of different kinds of bumps in this post. The one that is really, really, almost to itchy to take, and something else. Its been well over 10 years for me, and I do see a connection with stress. I have noticed this time around that I do have a problem with yeast this time, but do not remember if that is the case in the past. It has been well over a year since my last blister attack. You know these are coming on because of the itch that will literately wake you up at night it is so intense. If I ever learn anything that helps this I will re-post here. Good luck to you all.

by: Hovie Phillips

I get the same thing on the bottom of both feet. My brother said the same thing happens to him every summer. He told me to go to the Auto Zone and buy citrus hand cleaner with pumice and lanolin. I washed my feet twice a day with it and they were gone in 2 days...completely.
Only problem is now i like how clean the pumice left my feet feeling I'm keeping a bottle in the shower always and washing my face with it too, its an addictive feeling of clean, but trust me it really works great.

Count me in!
by: Jessica

I started breaking out in theses in '05, around the time my dad passed. Started as a few, maybe a dozen on my pinky. They itched, broke, went away. Then I got them intermittently throughout the few following years. Each time they would spread further-other digits, palms. Only one hand each time. I haven't had em in years and then today I looked down because I felt a bump, and ttthheeeyrrreee bbaaacck! Now they're a big larger, grouped tighter. Can these morph like that or is it something entirely different? Oh, witch hazel works really well to dry em up and stop the spread and itching. Just dump it on. Mine do eventually burn like fire, too. A doc did tell me it sounds like eczema, said stress brings it on. My hairdresser also said I have a lot of hair falling out, too. I don't feel especially stressed tho. I have a bunch of health issues, auto immune link is undiagnosed, not ms, lymes, thyroid, lupus.

Katrina's Reply: Jessica, the ones that I had have sometimes morphed together to form a "superblister" too and that was most annoying. I have been using tea tree oil on mine. The next outbreak I have, I will try this Defining Gel and see how that works. It's great on mosquito bites and many other skin ailments, so I will give it a go and see how it does.

Same problem
by: Anonymous

I have similar blisters, it healed once (almost 1 year ago, last summer) now it showed up again. 1st time I was diagnosed (and a dormmate) with scabies (there was burrowing) and the blisters showed up during the treatment (benzyl benzoate). My sister is an unexperienced doctor but she told me no way those blisters are scabies.

I personally think they are fungal/bacterial infection of some kind. I have very wet hands/feet and possibly athletes foot(stinky feet all the time), i'm getting a checkup soon.

It went away then came back!
by: Lisa S

When I was five months pregnant, that is when I got these bumps. That pic is two and a half years old now. When my son was five months old, so that would be march 2013, I got them again. Again, they went away on their own. When my son was six months old, he started to get rashes all over his feet. Very red, very itchy. The doctor diagnosed him to have eczema. He's two and a half and still flares up from time to time. More so on the backs of his knees now a days. I've tried everything on him, creams, eczema polysporin, bath treatment. I'm exhausted. Him and I ended up with hand foot and mouth back in September. I would not wish that kind of pain on anyone! It was horrendous!

Steroid cream
by: Anonymous

It's Palmoplantar pustulosis...You need a steroid cream the Dr gets it confused with fungal and scabies and hand / foot ... It can get on your hands/ palms. And your feet. It itches bad little red / clear blisters. Yeap. They don't know what causes it women get it more than men . Pregnant women and women who smoke. They don't know much about it .... //dermnetnz.mobify.me/scaly/palmoplantar-pustulosis.

tiny itchy blisters on fingers!
by: Anonymous

I have had this problem since last year and it's driving me insane! There nasty looking and when you pop them they leave a perfect circle/hole. I have soaked my fingers in Epsom salt and it kind of works but not as good as bleach! It does come in waves, comes and goes. I haven't had them for a couple months now there back on my right pointer finger. It would be nice to know what they are and where they come from but I don't want to go to the doctor and have them tell me something silly that I shouldn't worry about so I've been looking for an answer on here. They'll usually start on one finger then start to go away then pop up on another. I haven't had them anywhere else but my fingers thank goodness! I am also not pregnant.

Tarantulars
by: Billy

I get this and it's so bad I feel like pulling the skin of my hands. It comes and goes. I keep tarantulars and some flick hairs at you that makes you itch. If I have gloves on and the spiders hairs touch another part of my skin these hairs from the spiders trigger of these symptoms on the sides of my fingers. And it gets so itchy. I find if you don't itch them they go away.
It also triggers when I get paint on my hands from work.

Allergic reaction that causes these lumps

I'm itching as im typing this :-(

wow, finally found co-sufferers...
by: Anonymous

Who knew! :)
I have the same condition, on my hands. I started noticing the fluid-filled pin-head bumps on top and on the sides, and webbing of my fingers, usually one to three at a time. Some I would scratch visiously, then pop. Of course, then I read & heard it's not good to do that, because infection can spread. So then I would use an alcohol soaked cotton ball daily until it disappeared, or a scalding hot washcloth to open it up naturally, then cleanse with Hydrogen Peroxide, or Alcohol.
I've noticed it more the past few years just after I moved here to the desert, amongst alot of orchards.

I also noticed similar small pin-head flat bumps on the palms of my hands, many of them. I've had a couple on my hand for years since young, but since I moved up here, they just kind of appeared! They start out slightly itchy, then the itch goes away and leaves this fleshy scar/scab like warts, but flat. My doctor didn't say exactly what it was, but that it was contagious! Yet she didn't prescribe any medication!?

It seems to activate in the summer heat.

So I gather from these blogs, that this annoyance could be some form of contact dermatitis, scabies, dishydrosis? Or ...
Thank you to all who commented :).

I've gotten this for the past few years, every winter. For me, the blisters are always in groups of three. It's good to know I'm not the only one

contact dermatitis
by: Anonymous

I get the same things when I use a certain types of detergents. My symptoms are in line with contact dermatitis and whenever I get an episode I try not to irritate the area by resisting the urge to itch and apply E45 topical cream and avoid contact with any new detergents/creams/products. Hope this helps!

Diet
by: Anonymous

I have a soy allergy, and I have a few similar white bumps that come and go depending on how strict I am on my diet. They are always in the same place. My allergy is closer to "intolerance" as I don't have any life threatening symptoms...mostly bloating, itching, and when I'm getting really toxic with the allergy the white bumps appear. When I start eating a "clean" diet again, they disappear nearly overnight!

I have always had these. Never got a real answer.
by: Anonymous

I have had these (exactly like your photo) FOREVER! I have never had a real answer for it. I find it worsens when its hot and if I don't scratch, they tend to go away. They come in waves of small patches on my hands.

None of the diagnosis your doctor offered seem to match your photos.

I've also been told it could be an allergic reaction to detergent, or contact dermatitis.

I've learned to live with it. My mother gets it too.

Did you ever find relief, or answers?

hmmmm similar situation but,
by: Jennifer fr Florida

I have a similar situation. Only, my bumps do not itch & i am not pregnant. I had one single bump for about a year...finally i popped it. What was within seemed to be a clear fluid, thicker than water, but otherwise very similar. When i cleaned it away,there was a small, deep hole in my palm where the fluid had been. Then i began to notice more popping up. They are mostly on my palms, not my fingers. Again, they do not itch, they are not painful, they are just annoying and unsighyly. I have gotten more after popping the first one. I am always digging in my palms, and it dosent look very lady like. More recently however, ive noticed that the tiny bumps have begun to take on a more brownish tint, where as before that were flesh colored. Also, when i say tiny, i mean pin prick tiny. I would love to know what they are. Im not sure if its the same thing as what the other indivuals here are experiencing, due to the differences....its driving me crazy. I work in the medical field. Ive had several of the docs, and mid-levels look at them. All of them seem to dismiss them as unimportant, or not something to worry about...

small, itchy, clear- fluid filled bumps
by: Anonymous

When I was 19 I had my first encounter with these bumps. They came up all over my hands on the sides of my fingers on the bottom side of my arm on my feet and back...pretty much everywhere. I thought I got them from a boy that I was dating whom had recently gotten back from cleaning up after Katrina. I was constantly itchy and it got even worse as the weather got warmer. I was terrified I had gotten setting contagious! I went to a dermatologist and a regular doctor and I got the Same response..eczema or scabies...No such luck bc that would have been treatable. I thought I was nuts bc it wasn't going away! I had them all the time for a year straight or a little over a year. I tried creams and popping them open and poring peroxide on the them which helps somewhat. Finally it was like they were going away. Every on each in a while I still get them like over the last few days so again I squeezed and poured peroxide over them. I wasn't pregnant at the time I got them either that I know of bc I didn't have a baby within that year. Idk what they are and I don't think anyone else does either. If someone finds something that works I would be very excited to know. Thanks

I have found one thing that works
by: Katie

Judging from everything I have found on these bumps, its that eczema.... i wonder if it happens to those prose to eczema in the first place.. I used to have break outs of it all the time as a kid but i havent in years....

I have found one thing that actually works really well to help... Cannabis oil... its great for the skin and has been proven to help with psoriasis, skin cancers, eczema, and it honestly works as a great lotion. this is what I have found works the best.

Dyshidrosis
by: Anonymous

i have had it for the past year and I'm not pregnant. I have noticed that Neosporin for 30 minutes uninterrupted, a clean sewing needle to pop them and some scraping with the flat side, not only relieves the pain but will make them disappear within a few times of doing this. hope this helps . . .interestingly enough though I only happen to have them on my right hand . . . still can't figure that out.

Trial and error...
by: Lisa

Thank you Katrina. It's been over two weeks with these crazy blisters and I was told, since the wait list is so long to see a dermatologist, I'll probably have already had the baby by the time I see one lol nice eh? Ya, I'll try the tea tree oil out for sure :)

Still no real answer
by: Lisa S

Well, I had a reaction to the cream (not only making the blisters worse, but now I'm getting them on the palms and soles of hands and feet), the pharmisist told me to stop treatment and go back to the clinic. The doctor who thought it was Prurigo wasn't in, so I got to see Doctor #3. He said that it's not eczema, it's athletes foot. It's been more than four days now and I've been using this athletes foot cream on feet and hands. I am still getting blisters!!! My birthday was the 24th, and I got to spend it alone and pregnant in my house because of this issue...I am completely losing hope!!! Well, thank you for the congrats...Wish there was an easier answer and remedy for these blisters :( Oh ya, the doctor who prescribed the antibiotic cream for eczema was supposed to get the receptionist to call me with a set date with a dermetologist... That hasn't happened...Looks like I'm goin' in again tomorrow.

Second Opinion
by: Lisa S.

Well, oddly enough, I had printed up information on dyshidrosis, ant bites (because I found a few in my bedroom and thought maybe it was ant bites), scabies, and was just about to head out the door, when my boyfriend's Mom told me her sister got the same symptoms as I have and told me it happens during pregnancy, for some women, when entering third trimester (which I am 25 weeks pregnant)and for women who are expecting a boy. It's a condition called Pruigo. I had photo comparisons of all four conditions, including my photos and asked for this other doctor's opinion. He said that he highly doubts it's scabies, since it's not all over my body. He is giving me Taro-Mometasone Cream and told me that it's cream that can pretty much help the three other conditions (ant, dyshidrosis, and Pruigo). I really hope this cream works because I don't think I can deal with this itch much longer!!! I don't wish it on anyone...Best Regards...Lisa

Katrina's Reply: Hi Lisa, thanks for the update. Hopefully the skincare cream the doctor prescribed will do the trick. Itching is awful, no matter what the underlying cause. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
