I recently started developing blisters on my fingers of both hands that appear as blisters with a clear liquid inside. Even after they popped, the red area still continued to grow in size and created large scaly sores. The skin underneath and surrounding is very red, irritated and tender because the upper layers of skin have peeled away, while the surrounding area is slightly itchy. I was working at a vehicle repair shop and handling various battery acids and chemicals, and wonder if that could be the cause of the blisters. However even after I have stopped working there, there are new ones still forming. I have just started using an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream to treat the mild itch on the surrounding skin. Any idea what could be causing these sores? What would be the best course of action to heal these and is there any prevention for new blisters forming? At this point I do not know whether this is related to an allergy, an infection, a virus or a chemical burn or something else. Any help with this issue is very much appreciated. Thank you.
My best guess is that you have a form of eczema, which is quite common on the sides of the fingers. I suspect that your work is aggravating the eczema, not causing it. I advise you not to poke or peel the blisters, in case you are doing that. I suggest seeing a skin doctor, who can tell you what you have, and prescribe treatment to minimize discomfort.
This sounds exactly like the rash/blisters that my daughter has been dealing with for years. Her dermatologist called it dishydrosis, a condition in which sweat glands are not quite reaching the surface of the skin, causing sweat to become trapped--hence the blisters. The doc prescribed fluocinonide topical cream, which seems to help, but we have not been able to cure the condition.
I just started having blisters on my fingers on just one hand. No itching involved and they were all on the base of my finger. No redness, just clear fluid-filled blisters that left scars after they ruptured. I don't even were rings on 2 of the fingers involved. Then yesterday I noticed one on the side of that same hand. Any ideas of what this could be?
I have the same pin head size blisters which first occured after peeling oranges, I think it is the orange oil in the peel. In my case 1% cortisone cream is effective in giving relief. However I have just had a large outbreak after changing brands of hand soap. It may also have been caused by Aloe vera sunburn relief gel, or contact with a cat and dog we are babysitting. It will take time to determine the actual cause of the new outbreak. It took about 5 years as a child and many visits to dermatologists to finally figure out that peeling oranges was triggering the initial outbreaks, which then made my fingers sensitive to other irritants such as garden dirt, pollen, prolonged water exposure, pine needles, and various others irritants. To clear up an outbreak I keep my hands clean and dry, apply cortizone cream sparingly, with a unscented non-allergenic moisturing cream on top, in the case of severe outbreaks wearing loose cotton gloves helps. I also try to avoid contact with anything that might provoke the reaction. I hope this helps.
