Blisters on feet and scalp


Posted by Metaphore on July 30, 1999 at 12:26:12
I wrote earlier and complained of bumps on my hands..that cleared up fine. but now I have deep blisters that contain clear thick liquid on my toes that after they heal up on one spot, move to another toe they seem to be very deep in the skin and appear in clusters of about 3 or 4.  I also have found pimple like bumps on my scalp and thighs that have come out of nowhere.  im in my late 20's so I don't think they are just pimples.  Could the foot thing be related or just a strage case of athlete's foot? There is no redness or anything around the blisters on my feet like i have seen in normal athlete's foot. Can you help me?

Metaphore:
Blisters on the palms and soles may represent a rash called "dyshidrotic eczema."  The word "dyshidrotic," means "bad sweating, " which is what they used to think it was.  The blisters are not sweat glands, though, just inflammation in the skin.  This often is minor and goes away by itself.  Since yours are causing symptoms, you may want to see a dermatologist, who can prescribe topical cortisone creams which can help.  At the same time he or she can evaluate your scalp.  What you describe there has to be something different, but since it could be many things, from stress to seborrhea, somebody ought to take a look at it.
Best.
