I wouldn't be worried. Could be ecxema or you may have possibly come in contact with something like poison ivy. Difficult to say without seeing it. I recommend some over- the -counter hydrocortisone cream and if it doesn't clear up in a few days have a doctor look at it.

Do they hurt? itch? Are they like mosquito bites or blisters? are they red, white or flesh toned? Have you had your hands in any kind of substance that is unusual to you?

Hi, can you contribute the bumps to anything you have done/been in contact with recently? Any new medication, etc? It could give us more idea of why this has occurred...

No I havent done anything different. My fear is its a reaction to the tegreto. It scares me a little. Everything I have read says little bumps and peeling skin could be a dangerous reaction. Thank you for reponse. I a new to this and its nice to have some support. Especially when you feel all alone in this.

Hi, sorry, do you mean Tegretol? If so, yes, this is classed as a severe side effect, so i would advise you to get some advice asap about this... If you are not able to contact your doctor today i would suggest you contact your local ER - don't wait, do something about it now. It may be nothing to worry about, but better be safe than sorry.

Hello Lisalu 68. Wondering if it might be a allergic reaction to say, something you came into contact with or might possibly have eaten. Regards pledge

Hi, just out of interest are the bumps at the end of your finger nails on the skin, and are they raised and pink looking. I ask because I have these at the moment and they don't hurt. It is the second time I have noticed them, but not sure what causes them. Hope you don't mind me asking about this on your question, but my first thought was some sort of medication reaction. Thanks Liz.

You on Tegretol? Of course there are quite a few meds that have that same reaction.
