Hello and thank you for any help you could provide me with!
I am totally clueless as this is the first time I ever have a problem of the kind:
It started a week ago, i got one spot on the side of a finger. It happened at night and i thought it was an insect bite especially as it had a faint, very tiny, hardly noticeable dot in the middle.
Next morning same thing, a new spot, this time on another finger of the same hand (surface not touching the first spot). And again, every morning a new one until today. It is localized, all on the index+middle finger+ring finger of the right hand.
It is a mystery to me, as to why each spot seems to appear and hurt only in the morning and then nearly disappear during the day. The other spots from last week can still be seen but not much, they're still a little red but not sore anymore, just very dry.
They really seem to appear on a spot-a-day basis. They are sore (very painful!!), hard when they appear, don't itch at all. They don't break (seems to be deep) but leave a flaky dry skin along the day as the infection seems to 'calm down'.
Thanks for your answer Bhumika!
I don't have any other symptom. I am in excellent health and i'd better be… as a freelance, i am not able to pay a health insurance at this moment (i know, it's bad, but it's not a matter of choice), so my only source of help will be common sense and the internet. It's alright, i am brave an patient :-) I am just worried it might be contagious? It hasn't spread onto my other hand or anywhere else on my body so i have hope that it is not contagious.
I am a graphic designer/illustrator. Other than the keys of my laptop I use some pencils, inks etc. but nothing new… these materials i have always used and never had any problem before.
I'll have a look at calamine lotions and antihistamine!
thanks for leaving a note!!
my rash seems to be doing much better… i have no idea what helped, i tried different things all at the same time:
- nutritional: loads more of vitamin C (i read it's an effective natural antihistamine)
- tea tree oil directly on the skin (that seemed to help heaps!)
- washing immediately all bedsheets, pillowcases etc.
Now there's just a red and very dry mark of the rash, but it's fading away, not sore at all, there are no more new spots. Seems to be healing very fast! Maybe it was just insect bites? Which is very strange because i had a new one every morning and on the fingers of the same hand… the whole thing stays a mystery to me!
I just thought I'd tell you that I have a similar issue. I get the same kind of spots on the bottom palm side of my middle fingers, but only those two fingers. They have been coming and going for a few months now. They appear, hurt, and after a day or two disappear. Then, a couple days or maybe a week later they reappear. I thought at first they might be blisters, but they never pop or have any liquid come out of them. I'm not allergic to anything, and can't seem to figure out what causes them to appear or what they are. I usually get two on my right hand and one on my left hand. So, anybody have any ideas?
Hi there, I've just been to the doctors about the spots on my fingers, I get them every few months or so, the doctor first checked my feet as this rash can be related to athletes foot.
I was clear of that, I have tried hydrocortisone before which didn't work so this time the doc recommended elocon steroid cream.
I put it on like 20 minutes ago and it's working already!
I was told if that didn't work I was to go to a skin specialist :S
This rash is on my hands, elbows and knees.
IT'S NOT CONTAGIOUS!!
It cannot be spread through skin to skin contact! Yays!!!
yeah,I have a similar issue. I get the same kind of spots on the bottom palm side of my fingers, one or two fingers. i got this similar kind of spot last year.now again from last 5-4 months,they appear, they r itchy,hurting when i press them. also they r not visible.but i can feel them when i press my finger. and after a day or two disappear. and left with a dead skin.it is circulating on my all finger like 2 in day next two in another fingers like that. they reappear. i am not able to understand what exactly they are and what causes them to appear. I usually get two on my right hand and one on my left hand.
