It's been weeks since ive developed this symptom, I guess you would say. It started sometime in June I'm thinking it is of some kind allergic reaction? Small little pussy bumps on my hands/fingers and some on my feet. They are real itchy, I pop them and put neosporin on it and cover with a bandaid. After they pop it leaves my skin dry and itchy then more form.. what's going on? What are they? And what causes them? I'd there something out there that could get rid of them? It been very frustrating to deal with.

General doctor is fine too. Sounds like hoof and mouth disease or one similar. Contagious and goes away on its own. But very irritating so see the doctor right away and use plenty of soap and water on your hands to keep it from spreading. Be careful sharing anything including beverages you have touched until they find exactly what it is.
Oh, stop popping them. You are spreading the infection in the air. Wear white gloves on your hands if you are concerned. They are at the pharmacy.

Make an appt with your dermatologist... I have the same exact thing and have had it for many a yr... I believe u have ezema... I no I spelled that wrong... but they look like them little ulcers u get under your tongue when u eat to much acid... no one in all the research I have done seems to no the exact cause but a lot say do to stress which I have panic/agoraphobia among other things so this would make sense to me..mine itch to were I want to rip my skin off and after scratching so hard it's like a blister fluid comes out... and then after a while it turns into a sort of dry skin and takes a while for the skin to heal sounds like what u got... see a dermatolagist a.s.a.p they can prescribe things for u..keep me posted..

I don't have an answer but I am wanting to know xoxo386 if you have found out what it is. I have been searching the web for some time now with mixed signals. You have explained it exactly how I would have and exactly what I am experiencing. I have stopped popping them because I have noticed the spread as well. I have them on my feet, hands and abdomen area. Any insight you have would be most helpful!

I've had the same problem. Itchy palms that form a pimple like blister that pops and turns into a hard skin crust that's thick. When it seems like it's getting better, it starts all over again. After doing research and going to the doctor with what I thought, I was right. It's called dyshidrosis, and is in the exzema family. The only way to get rid of it is by steroid cream. Good luck!!

I had the exact same problem, I started around the time when I was in 6th grade with the weird looking bumps. I would pop them because I didn't know what they were but all it did was make it get worse. I was to emberessed to Tell my parents about it. But then it started to get really bad and my nails were changing color they started turning white and yellow it wasn't till about 2 years ago my patterns decided to take me to the doctor and my doctor had said it was some kind of fungus and gave me some creme , but it really didn't help .. I went back a couple more times when finally my doctor decided to send me to a dermatologist. All he did was look at my hand and say that I had psoriasis and that he couldn't do anything about it. I later went back because it was getting so bad he finally decided to get a sample of my nail and skin and do some exams and take blood out ..
They called me almost a week later and told me that I didn't have psoriasis but that I had some kind of fungus and that it was curable he prescribed some pills that would kill the fungus and an anti itch creme this was around April .. Around the ends of May i took my nail polish off and realized that my nails were starting to grow normal and my skin was no longer itchy with the watery bumps when I finished the pills the dermatologist gave me another creme to prevent that from happening again and it's been about a year and half and my hands are great ! I hope this helps

It's scabies, I'm sitting here with the 12 hour treatment right now, don't itch it don't come in prolong contact with anyone don't sit on someone's bed or couch. It will spread. Tell your doctor, if they say it's not insist on the test. A microscope examination of your skin. U will see the mites , get treatment and if your Dr does not mention it buy lice spray to kill the scabies on it bed, blankets, and car seats inform people u come into contact with and do your best to eliminate it and try to never get re infected. Everyone in your house should be treated at the same time.

I used sulfameth/tmp ds pills. it worked
it cleared it up in about 4 days.
they are anti-biotics usually used to fight off staff infection and rashes. I dont know if you can get it without a prescription you might though. before that it was cleared up it was spreading everywhere. the bumps. I dont think its excema because it spreads on contact with other parts of your skin

My mom had this when I was younger. I had it and delt with it for a while as well. The creams did not work. I did however find a lotion that gets rid of it. It has been nice. I have been using it for 4 months. I would love to share information with people. It would be nice to see if this works for you as well. It is all natural plant based lotion.

I too have these but I think is as I told my doctor deep water type blister that if I'm lucky can get some watery fluid from them they stop hurting in few hours. They sort of swell my hand itch like crazy and very painful if I leave them be. He said they were a type of under skin cold sore, later reading some where very common in people who may have shingles and or mouth sores . he says these are not contagious but I haven't got the cash to keep digging so I treat me and don't touch my grandkids or cook for anyone. And if anyone has something other then scabies which are nothing like these (I had as a kid for months on end) those are hot n miserable way different then this pain n sensitivity! Hope this help. Also I use sometimes chap six Carmen on them when stings as it kinda cools the burn if they do! Some don't.

I too have this condition once again... it's been about a year since the last episode. I've done extensive research and looked at images that are on point! I found this site information to be very helpful Wikipedia-search Dyshidrosis. I have yet to find the "miracle cure". But will update when I find something that works...

Okay so after talking to my boyfriend (who is in Med School) and also doing extensive research online.. These small bumps are part of the eczema family, its called Dyshidrosis.
I first had an "episode" of these small bumps on my foot (if I looked closely at my foot, there was a tiny area with small skin coloured bumps.. about 4-6 smalll tiny bumps and super super super itchy). I initially didn't know what it was, I would wake up in the middle of the night itching and itching my food. I thought it was some sort of bug bite and didn't pay too much attention to it. But after about a week I was dying, it was so itchy. I started using a super moisturizing cream (from the Body Shop, Almond Hand & Nail Cream, $20) and after about two days the bumps went away. I thought this was by complete coincidence.. But then (read below!)
A SIDE NOTE worth mentioning, the bumps would only get really really itchy at night, like unbearable.
Now, about 6 months later, the side of my middle finger on my right hand is super itchy with tiny little bumps. Last night I put the same cream on my hands, rubbed it in real good (don't be afraid to use a lot before bed).. Then I left a chunk of cream on that bumpy area - within a few minutes the itching went away. I left the chunk of cream there and went to bed. I woke up this morning and checked that area (lotion has absorbed into skin) and the bumps are going down (WOOOHOOOO!). I think after tonight (after I do the same cream remedy), they'll be gone by tomorrow.
I can email photos to anyone wanting to see before and after within two days.
So ladies and gentlemen, I think I have found the ultimate magic remedy!
Let me know if you try it.

I have noticed these itchy, bumpy, rash-like patches on my hands and fingers lately. Am I having an allergic reaction to a medication? or is it maybe ...
