I am a Caucasian woman in my 30's. Two weeks before Thanksgiving, I noticed on my right palm (by my thumb and index finger) a 2 inch patch that had hard little bumps underneath & was a little painful & a little itchy. Since then, that area has cleared up, but there have been single bumps that appear in a random sort of pattern - 1 bump on my left ring finger at the base in between the fingers, 3 bumps separated by 1/2 inch on the back of my right hand in a triangle pattern, 1 single bump on the back of my right index finger, 2 small bumps on the underside of my right pinkie finger....etc. I currently have about 15-20 random bumps between my right & left hand.
They are NOT itchy. Some are tender, some are not tender. Some are the size of a pin point, the largest is the size of the o that I just typed. Some are skin color, some are light white but it doesn't look like a pimple head. They are raised bumps, uniform circular pattern, no indentation, the boardering skin is red around the bump. I have broken a few of the bumps open to see what is inside and have not seen pus or anything else come out. In the past few days, it seems like I wake up with a few more bumps on my hand than I did the day before. The bumps are localized to my hands and fingers. I attached a picture that I found on-line that somewhat resembles the bumps. However, the picture I found was scabies....and I definitely do not have any itching and the bumps are not located anywhere else but my hands/fingers.
I have a toddler at home and my husband and I are try to conceive, so I wanted to figure this out before I get pregnant just in case the bumps would be harmful for the baby or the treatment.
Sorry this is my first time posting a question & I didn't see where the picture I posted on the 1st post went....so I am sending the link of the picture I found on line that most closely resembles what I am experiencing...Most of the pictures of scabies do not look like my hand bumps, but this one in particular does. It is a picture of a little hand, but if you click on zoom, you can see the bumps better.
