Exclamation tiny itchy firm water blister-like bumps

does this sound familiar to anyone? right now, i have 4 tiny (pin-head size) bumps that looks like it's liquid filled on the side of my second finger. and i had a few on the side of my palm. they come and go within a few days, and don't usually return in the same area. what the hell are they? anyone had them b4?

A friend of mine gets these from time to time...Doc really couldn't explain it, but said it was probably stress related. Stress exacerbates eczema, and exzema can look like what you've described. So...I'm gonna say it just might be eczema!

It's called dyshidrosis. It's a common form of eczema. It's not usually treated unless it gets bad. Steroid cream/hydrocortisone can be used.

I get those darn things too. Aren't they irritating? Here's what I did and it does seem to help.

I get a cotton ball and put some apple cider vinegar (only this kind)
on it and just hold it on there, or put a bandaid on it to hold it in place. Helps on the itch and it's usually gone in hour or two. Hope this works for you too. It regulates the ph balance of the skin. Diana

I've had these bumps off and on for years. My PCP diagnosed it as a type of eczema and in my case we determined that it's primarily an allergic response to the cheaper grades of printer/photocopier paper and inks. [Allergies are a form of stress.]


Thanks for the apple cider vinegar cure; will try it next time and see how that works.

I have a few of those tiny water blisters on my finger but I have assumed they were due to candida. They are watery, not filled with pus, almost invisible except they itch sometimes and then I notice them.
