Hello, The small itchy bumps on your fingers can be due to contact dermatitis or dyshidrotic eczema. For the itchy bumps, take antihistaminics like Benadryl(causes drowsiness) and Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rashes as it helps in soothing the skin.You can also apply mild steroid cream on the rash.If the symptoms persists then oral steroids may be needed which are available on prescription. Also keep the area well moisturized with good moisturiers.

During the school year last year, my brother started to have swollen fingers (not his thumb), and on the fingers there would be red itchy bumps. He says that sometimes they will feel warm when they begin to get irritated and then get extremely itchy. He only gets these every few months or so, and they will stay for about a week tops. As far as he remembers, he never got them during the summer. They do not work on a schedule, and only appear every so often.
Just three days ago these little tiny bumps appeared on the side of my hands and fingers. They were very very tiny. Now, not only have they multiplied, they're also growing. Some bumpbs seem like theyre a little big larger while others seem like it's turned into a cluster of little bumps. They're very itchy. I tried using hydrocortisone, but that only helped stop the itch. It doesnt spread to anywhere besides the top/sides of my hands/fingers. Not the palms. Please help asap!
Dr., I have been getting small red bumps and or blisters on my palms, fingers and sides of hands for several years (7-8). The red bumps appear larger than the small blisters. The blisters are only about the size of a pen tip, and the red bumps are slightly larger. the bumps do not hurt, but the blisters do only when direct pressure is applied to them.They appear on both hands/fingers in random areas and pop up without warning.They can appear single or in multiples.
Pompholyx primarily involves the hands and fingers and then may involve the feet. The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Although herpetic whitlow is also common at the fingers, but it presents as painful itchy blisters. Molluscum is a contagious viral disease and hence you should get it evaluated. Warts present as small painless and non itchy bumps on the hands.
Now a week ago after being in a salt water pool for a few hours I started itching on my palms and soles of my feet. The next day the bumps started on my fingers and also on my palms but they itched severely. After two days I couldn't stand the itching so I bought over the counter anti itch hydrocortazone cream. At first it seemed to relieve it but hours later it burned. Each day the bumps spread and grow and are hard and tight. My knuckles are also tight.
The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I've had a similar problem - itchy bumps on my fingers. I have found that it occurs mostly when my hands are most dry - in the winter. At first, I too tried hydrogen peroxide to kill them off. But it only made them worse - hydrogen peroxide dries out skin. Also exposure to water - like taking a shower or washing the dishes - makes this things worse, as water, ironically, dries out skin as well. CURE: (at least for my problem) (read #3!!!!
They are quite painful to touch. In the last month or so, I've gotten them on almost all of my fingers, and I now have a couple on the palms of my hands. They usually last a few days and then go away. I asked my doc about them and he suggested herpes whitlow, but I tested negative for HSV-I and HSV-II. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Any ideas on what could be wrong??

Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. Scabies is an infestation of the skin with the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist and get it evaluated. I hope it helps.

I sometimes get these little bumps on my index and middle fingers that normally go away within a week or two, but this last time I got them they did not go away and now they seem to be dried out and they're very itchy. I tried using lotion to help with the dryness but that just stops it temporarily and doesn't help with the itching. The skin is also hard where it's dry.

I used a product called Dr Bronners Magic Soap which contains tea tree oil and shortly after has these symptoms on my fingers and palms. I had gotten it on my hands when applying it on my foot. I noticed an even more severe reaction on my foot after finding information about tea tree oil. I found this info regarding contact dermatitis regarding tea tree oil "Tea tree oil should not be used orally; there are reports of toxicity after consuming tea tree oil by mouth.
I have a case of itchy hands. I can't help but itch, and I get to the point when I keep itching, that I start forming little white bloches, and bumps all in between and around my fingetrs, palms, wrists, and anywhere else on my hands~!! I've tried to convince my mom to take me to the clinic, but she thinks it's a bad case of dry skin. She has no idea how much it hurts to be in this condition, and it's only itchy and hurtful, but it's gross and I need a docter, but my mom says I don't need it.

It spreads rapidly around the original blister and will have my hands covered in bumps in as soon as a matter of 24 hours or less. Covering all fingers and both palms with a red like rash coupled with bumps itchy oozing skin and blistering. My itching is very intense, wounds develope and becasue of my age dont heal so well. and will become dark after time and hard, making the skin very scaley. I can go days , weeks , or months and my hands can actually look normal at times.

Itchy, red bumps on the fingers may develop after contact with any allergen. Scabies can cause itchy red bumps on the hands and finger webs. Fungal infection will cause bumps, scaling and itching. If there are blisters it is possible that it is due to dyshidrotic eczema. A correct diagnosis will help in deciding the exact treatment for your condition. Consult a dermatologist. Do keep me posted. Take care and regards!
Instead, a huge amount of bubbles of clear liquid appear underneath the skin of fingers, palms of the hand, and soles of feet. They are sometimes itchy and painful. The liquid eventually drains from the blisters back into the body, and the skin flakes off leaving a tender area of clear skin painful to touch. The cause of dishydrosis is hard to pinpoint. Other not so common causes are chickenpox, herpes simplex or impetigo. It could be due to allergy. So you could take an anti-histamine for it.
I am a 50 year old male and just started getting a rash on my fingers and hands after sun exposure at age 47 or 48. It is always in exactly the same locations (top inner sides of upper middle fingers, top of hands-especially the areas closest to thumb and forefinger. At first I thought it was an allergy to the sunscreen. So I tried not using any. Didn't help, but didn't seem to make it worse. Interesting note related to the previous post about South African sun...
Hi, I have been having extreme itchiness on my hands and feet that comes and goes. I feel like I could go out of my mind once it starts. They become red and it sometimes looks like tiny bumps under the skin. This will stop and start for no apparent reason. Could this be my nerves causing this or something more...??? Thanks!!
Just over a week ago on holiday I found myself scratching my hands and fingers.I noticed that there were red patches UNDER the skin around the creases and down the side of my fingers. After a short time the itch and marks would disappear. It was happening at any time but wasn't too much of a problem. Then when I got home it started getting worse and has now started on my feet. The weird thing is the itching starts suddenly and then goes away completely without a trace.
