Your symptoms are suggestive of pompholyx. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons. But some triggers like allergic reaction to soaps, detergents, foods, latex, nickel etc may trigger the symptoms. Apply some calamine lotion on the affected area and keep the area well moisturized. Use only thin applications of moisturizer ointments as excessive amounts of ointment may restrict breathing of the skin and aggravate the condition.
Topical steroids can be applied but they are available under prescription. Moreover to prevent infection, topical antibiotics may be needed. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I have the same problem as you do. I always though it was from wearing gloves and being in contact with rusty chains at work. I had been going to my derm for this for years they start off small on the inside of my fingers and i bust them open clear liquid comes out they burn like crazy and hours later they are filled up and spread My doctor had put me on Mupirocin 2% ointment and i have been using it on and off for the last 4 years they dry the blisters up pretty much on contact without the pain..... She said this is caused from a form of Exzama
ive had these water blister things on my right hand on and off for a few years now, since i was 20, i always pop them because theyre gross, but theres not much you can do, just pop them then put antiseptic cream into the wounds and they heal up pretty quick, think its to do with stress, theyre proper annoying tho!
Hi, I had the same problem as you had. It itched so bad I took a scotchbrite pad and dish washing liquid and scrubbed my hands raw, because the pain felt better than the itching. I finally went to the doctor after both of my hands were covered with blisters and completely raw. He never could figure out what it was, but prescribed Predisone 10mg steroid pills, and Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment 0.1%. I took OTC Benedril for the itching. It was amazing how fast this cleared up in 3 days I was healed and the top couple layers of skin peeled off and almost back to normal. I tried cortisone cream and it was like I put fertilizer on it, started spreading like crazy. We still don't know what caused it, but I hope it never happens again. This was a horrible experience.
Hi all i had the same problem as yourselves for nearly two years, finally got to see a specialist about it and was told it was pompholyx, was giving tons of steriod creams and oral steriods to take, yes they got rid of the problem for a short period of time and then they would come back time and time again, because a lot of these steriod creams thin the skin i found the out breaks where coming back worst everytime and i was nearly at breaking point and unable to cope with it anymore, that was until one day my brother told me he had read an piece on this, he told me that manuka honey is suppose to do wonders for it. So every day i take a spoon full of it with my breakfast and i havent had an outbreak for nearly three months, it really had done me wonders. Plus he doesnt cost a fortune like the creams
