Question Tiny Water Bubbles on Fingers and Toes? What r they?

Hi everyone. I have a quick question.

From time to time i get clusters of little water bubbles on my fingers and on my toes. Does anyone know what these are called or what are they?

They are not big like blisters, they are very small bubbles that form inside hte skin, so they don't pop out as much, only once in a while on my toes.

Anyone know?

It's a very common fungal infection.

Get some over-the-counter antifungal cream and use it EXACTLY as directed on the package label. You must use it even AFTER the problem goes away, for several weeks at least. Fungus is tough to eliminate.

If this doesn't work, or the problem returns after a solid four to six weeks of using the antifungal cream, see a doctor for a prescription product.

It's probably just contagious since it's a fungal infection or whatever.

This is also a sign of eczema. I was given a steroid cream by a doctor and it goes away pretty quickly

It could be a fungal infection, or a form of eczema called pompholyx. The eczema can be treated with topical steroids, the fungus with OTC antifungal creams. If it IS a fungus, topical steroids can cause it to spread.
If you have athlete's foot or toenail fungus ( it IS possible to have it without knowing, sometimes people just mistake it for dry skin), the fungus can cause these small blisters to appear elsewhere on your body, commonly on the sides of your fingers. They are an allergic reaction to the fungus - the blisters don't contain the fungus.

It is best to see a doctor who can determine what those blisters are - a fungal infection, pompholyx eczema, or an allergic reaction to a fungus elsewhere in your body.
