i was reading about the STD syphilius, and that spots on the palms of the hands or the palms of the feet were a symptom of its second stage. Try reading about it and see if it applies to you. Hope that helped.

hhmm, same here, and ya, no syphillis (syphilis), no chance..
It's hard to describe but been going on for the last couple weeks. Kinda like a tiny spot UNDER the skin, that can be white or slightly red. Burns or like pin sticks or itches like crazy when touched. If you soak your hands in water for a few, they are really visible, lots of red tiny spots. Also have had many tiny dry peeling patches of skin on my palms.

I, too, am having this same thing happen to my hands. My spots aren't blister-like at all and are not raised in any way. However, they are very, very uncomfortable. They almost feel like a case I had once of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (Cox Sacci Virus, I think is the actual medical term for it). The only difference is those turned into blisters, then dried up and "fell off" after a few days. These will not go away and seem to be getting worse. And, I know it is absolutely not syphilis because I am celebate. I will keep checking around and back here to see if we can come closer to some conclusion.

I SAW A DREMATOLOGIST AND HE KNEW RIGHT AWAY WHAT IT WAS.  THESE SORE SPOTS ARE CAUSED BY POOR CIRCULATION IN MY HANDS DURING COLD WEATHER AND IT IS TRUE.  THE SORE BUMPS DO GO AWAY WHEN IT WARMS A BIT AND COMES BACK WHEN IT'S FREEZING OUTSIDE. HE SAID NOONE KNOWS WHY THIS HAPPENS IN THE WINTER BUT TO KEEP HANDS WARM THE BEST YOU CAN.  THERE IS A PILL BUT DOES RECOMMEND IT UNLESS ABSOLUTLEY NECESSARY.

I get these all the time. I work in the kitchen, baking. I notice they appear when I use bleach to clean, use brooms, mops, don't use any of the above. Just thought it was a contact dermatitis. I use Bert's bees green ointment and they fade... Or if I can't find the ointment, they fade on their own. There is peeling sometimes, as well. Never one to think it's serious... it is a bother, but seems to be a fact of life. By the way, heat and cool don't seem to be the factor, as it happens in winter, summer... whenever.

Hello. Did you ever find out what it was on your hand? My hand was like that and found out it was pustular psoriasis. There's no cure for it but they do have meds that would help control it.

What you (msslinkywinky) were experiencing were simply fever blisters caused by your body trying to warm your hands and poor circulation.  For the rest of you, the red, slightly burning blisters are from too much gluten.  Your body is trying to expel it, and unfortunately it can't sweat it out.  Stay away or reduce your wheat and milk intake.  Keep in mind, we are the only animals on this planet that drink milk after nursing, and the only ones to drink another animal's milk.  The main problem is, you can't trust doctors because most of them are made to sell pills.  Always get a second opinion, and a third from a homeopathic specialist or herbalist.  There is almost always a natural way to cure something.

I'm 20 and I've had different sized red circles under the skin of my palms, they've never risen or blistered but they burn so badly and are very sensitive to heat. I've looked at all the diseases and pictures and none of them seem to match my problem. They all were blistered or peeled skin, and that has never happened. Here's a picture of mine: http://i589.photobucket.com/albums/ss340/terras_/551194_2730406039653_1842327980_1591076_431097744_n.jpg

Very painful

that's exactly like mine, mine is under the skin and gives a stinging/burning sensation aswell as being itchy ... very sensitive to heat. Dr said it's a virus usually from people coughing/sneezing into your face (I'm a teacher so that makes sense) and that the itch/sting is caused by too much histamines being released especially when I sleep as body temperature rises. Prescribed me telfast 180mg for two weeks and said if it didn't work after 5 days to go on a course of low grade steroids, which I'm going to have to collect tomorrow cos telfast isn't working. It's really painful too. Defo go to a dr

MSSLINKYWINKY and I have the same issue. Red spots on my palms only occur during October until December and sometimes it reaches until January...it always happening to me almost every year since I'm in sixth grade until now that I'm in 3rd yr high School..
Are there any remedies for this??? If none, I'll just wait until december'january ends...thanks

did you ever find out what has caused your red spots.  I'm having similar spots which started when I was under a lot of stress and was given two antibiotics (a rocephin shot and a z-pack oral) and a steroid shot
