blisters that itch so bad

Sounds like i have the same thang! ugh it bothers me so much i have had it for 3 years now it all started after i got a small case of scabies. They went away but after about 4 months i got a couple of itchy bumps on my fingers. They itched so bad & turned red after scratching them. I hope that i finally found what is wrong. Thanks to this web site maybe i have answers. I found if you pop the blisters it makes it alot worse and even spreads it so whatever you do don't pop them!! I just got it on my fingers mostly and on my left hand. Cortizone 10 used to help but now it barely does i have to put that on plus bandaids to keep me from really scratching it mostly when i wake up is when it's the worst.


Katrina's Reply: You're right about popping dyshidrosis blisters. It hurts and can make the situation worse. Different skin care creams work for different people with this condition. It's sometimes trial and error.

Diet will help
by: Nerklsob

Hello, I've posted on here before about low nickel diet and how it has helped my very severe hand dyshidrosis....well I'm back after quite some time to tell you that not only will low nickel diet help but I've found something even better. I have gone gluten free. My last day of eating gluten was on Valentine's Day of this year (2012) and I am so happy and excited to say that I have not broken out since! Well, that is not entirely true...I did suffer from one break-out after I accidentally ate something that contained gluten.

I can't tell you all how much I believe gluten is the cause of our dishyrosis. I decided to go gluten free after talking to an Uncle who lives very far away, who has Celiac disease. When I told him what was going on with my hands he asked me if I had been tested for Celiac disease because dishydrosis is very prevelant amoung the Celiac community...however once the person has been diagnosed and they go gluten free...it seems to clear up. He also said that skin problems are actually the first sign of gluten intolerance/celiac disease...not intestinal issues like most people think.

That was enough for me to try going gluten free and I'm so, so happy with the results. To have lived these past five months with no painful break-outs has been a dream. I can't urge people enough to go gluten free.....also...read up on gluten and how and why most people who have a heritage of caucasian-european seem to have problems digesting it. It is really very interesting....all I know is that I'm so glad I went GF...I now live a very pain-free, break-out free life and I will not be going back to that.
