Need help identifying a rash
At least, I think it's a rash, it's rash-like, anyway.
It's on my thumb, I swear I've had something like it before, but it vanished. This time, it won't go. It started out as just two tiny bubbles on the back of my thumb which I promptly scratched into popping (forgive me, I do that to my skin afflictions ^^;; Scratch off, douse with alcohol....repeat the next day. It never really works, but it makes me feel better.) Instead of going away, though, the bubbles began to multiply. I continued scratching them off, and trying more and more different creams and antibiotic liquids, but all it's done for me is make it painful to move my thumb -- this has naught to do with the rash, and all to do with me trying to get rid of it, so don't take that little bit of info into consideration when trying to identify it ^^;
All I have to say for a description of the rash is this -- Tiny, clear-but-thicker-than-water-liquid filled bubbles -- when removed, there is what looks like a pinhole in the middle of the under-layer of skin. I'm guessing this is where the liquid is coming from. They didn't itch at first, but now it's getting unbearably itchy, but only every so often, and he itching feeling becomes very strong for a second or two after popping.
I've tried not popping them, and since I've started this experiment, the bubbles have started spreading onto the rest of my hand.
My friend's mother, who used to be a nurse, said that it had something to do with fungus, and she sprayed it with lamosil. This appeared to make it worse. I'm not sure exactly what my friend's mother was saying about the rash, though, she was speaking a different language.
Sketching is my hobby, I do it everyday, and this rash is definately interfering. PLEASE HELP! ^_^
