I get these bumps but they are hard and cant be seen at first but you can feel them deep under the skin. Ive popped them hard under the skin and then they make red sore patches. Within 3 weeks my fingers and palms have hard dry patches on them and as it wear away with bath etc it becomes red because the skin is then completely raw. Its not easy to leave them alone for they itch. Its also scarey, will i be defaced and scarred oneday on my face? They disappear for months but come back and my hands are so itchy and dry before they come out. I have really beautiful hands and this is breaking my heart plus its ugly. They can drive you crazy. Years ago i had them on my elbows and then they scab over, fall of, red raw patches and go away again?? Please advise me.

I just today noticed a small clear blister on my thumb...first one, then another. I've been wearing rubber latex gloves for the past 5 days of work to keep chemicals off my hands. They feel like slivers...but nothing is in them other than fluid. What might they be?

I have the same bumps that you are referring to. Mine are like very tiny shards of glass. When removed they seem to be tiny triangles. I am trying to find out what they are. I got them over 25 yrs ago when I was going to a spa on Walnut St in Phila, PA. They began on my feet and over the years spread to my hands. They are contagious; as four of my five children have acquired this same problem. I did not notice for many years as going to the salon kept my feet and hands smooth. I did try cutting/plucking them out only to have them regrow. I tried doing same and then spraying Lysol (note:hurts to high heaven)after removal and this did lessen the number but I was never able to totally alleviate the problem before fear of toxin related problems scared me into stopping. I have no idea what this #%&! is but I truly hate it. Have you had any luck since posting?

Some one mentioned Molluscum contagiosum in one of the much earlier posts. I looked it up and it fit my lesion perfectly. Many thanks to that poster.

Same deal here. I used to have them since i was around 7 years old. Now I am 23. But it comes rarely now. Right now I have one on my thumb. Looks White tiny Bump. And feeling on my other fingers too. Just want to point it out that don't scratch it or do nothing silly with them. They come & go away. At the Early age i used to have them between my every finger (Both hands & Foot). And that felt really bad. But as i have grown older, they are gone. I guess the Reason behind it is Heat.

I also have these fluid filled bumps on my finger, usually only on my pinky finger. I have noticed if I wrap a band-aid around it, it clears up a bit but it is only on my pinky it has never spread before I do have eczema does anyone else have any other skin conditions???

I have this too. I first had it on my pinky finger, I took benedryl and put hydrocortizone on it and it cleared up. Now it is on the palm of my hand. I will put and good layer of cortizone on it and then a latex glove for about an hour a day and that seems to help. I have found keeping it moist, keeps the bumps from forming.

i had gone through all the posts briefly from the start. I have had the same type of thing happening to me for approx 9 years now, but mine started on my 'neck',(funnily enough when my eldest daughter had the chicken pox) they flare up frequently (more so if stressed). Then recently i had a small cluster appear on my hand (between finger & thumb-but on hand part), they were just water filled tiny bumps. They get sore when scratching at them, but its difficult not to. I always use Aqueious cream on my hands, but it hasn't helped. They start to dry out but won't clear easily, they just look red, raised & dry, after scratching. They then spread further down my fingers.....really confused :o/
I have also been getting similar on my legs, which i thought was from using an Epilator, but they have not cleared up after 1-2yrs of not using Epilator, they leave small scars, really horrible & depressing :o(
Would love to hear some possitive feedback on this :o) xx

I have had this strange clearish bump on the side of my palm for as long as I can remember now. When It first appeared it was small and I picked it off. A month later it came back a little larger. I kept repeating this process until it looked like this:

On the right is circled a smaller one that appeared a year later. Both grew to those sizes and have been like that for many years. The skin of the bump is tough, almost like a soft callous, and thick.
A couple of days ago I noticed 3 tiny bumps on the inside of my pinky finger on the same hand. Today I looked at them and now there are 11 or 12 of them. These are similar to what the above ones looked like at first but arent growing. Also, the original ones are becomming softer and seem to be going away while more pop up. I definately think they are different.

The ones on the side of my hands arent warts. If they were, they should have gone away by now. I have also tried to freeze them with absolutely no success.
If anyone knows what this is, please help. I would greatly appreciate it!
