Blister-like bumps on my palms

I have small, white, blister-like bumps on my palms right now. They're not itchy at all. I was just wondering what these are, because I also had them twice, before. The first instance was when I was taking Tylenol3 last year, and the second one was around Christmas, when I had a few drinks. This week it happened again, right after I had my rashes from drinking something alcoholic. Can anyone tell me what this is? A friend told me it might be syphillis, but I don't believe him because I haven't had sexual intercourse before. I hope it's not syphillis, but it's really bothering me.

It can be due to contact dermatitis or pompholyx. Pompholyx is also called dyshidrotic eczema. It is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure.

If the blisters are very painful then herpetic whitlow needs to be ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

I looked at some pictures of Pompholyx, my rashes does look like that, but not as severe. The bumps are smaller and the "liquid" inside is clear. Anyway, I only had the rashes for a week, and it was not itchy at all. I don't see anything on my palms anymore. I hope I don't get it again. Thank you, Dr. Kaur!
