A couple of days ago, I started feeling like the palm side of my left thumb was really itchy. So I scratched. Well, that caused the thumb to feel like it was on fire! But ti still itched. I ran my finger over it and it was covered in tiny little raised bumps. Then it migrated to my second and middle finger on that side, and to two fingers on the other hand.
Any ideas as to what this could be?
I haven't used any new lotions, creams, soaps, laundry detergents, anything. In fact, I have barely left the house in the past few days because I'm battling strep throat and pyelonephritis (kidney infection).
Oh, one thing that's different is the antibiotic I'm taking for those. Could a sulfa allergy cause this? Hm...off to research that. But any insight would be appreciated!
