tiny blisters on fingers

i do not have a question but a  slight helpfull solution to the tiny blisters on the fingers. ever since i was small i have had tiny blisters on my fingers that come and go.the following is what usually happens
1 hands are a bit hotter a day or two before you get these blisters
2 they are under the skin
3 tiny & and clear, like water
4 your hands feel hot and kind of itchy
i have had cortizone cream and steroid cream but nothing works. many years with this has lead me to come up with things.
wash with cold water. soak hands in cold water with baking soda and drink echinacear root tea.
i am not sure what causes these blisters but once you catch the first one keep washing your hands under cold water. i have heard that they are because of stress which i agree with and that people who get these blisters are when are immune system is down. thats why i recommend the tea that busts up you immune system plus its a natural not chemical. forget the creams they only made hand hotter you need to keep them cool. if any other things that i have not tried let me know!

This discussion is related to small, subdermal 'blisters'.

From the symptoms,it sounds like dyshidrotic eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.

For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).

Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.

If still the symptoms do not improve then pls get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist.
I hope that helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards

Has anyone concidered the fact that it could be caused by type 1 herpes? I've done some reaserch, because I also get these. I also get cold sores.  
The fact that they are usually brought on by stress and easily spread is a very common thing with this. The virus is stored dormant in your nervous system until another outbreak. And is usually caused by stres.... anything that irritates your nervous system

A possible solution.. Clusters of tiny, clear, spider egg like blisters started showing up in-between my fingers and toes. Never had anything like it before. They itched like crazy, especially at night. Started on one finger, on one hand and spread rapidly from finger to finger, then to the next hand. After about a month after, they crusted over and peeled off. Finally saw a doctor shortly after, he said I had Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies) and prescribed me Permethrin cream, 5%*. Will write back after 2 weeks of treatment. Hope this helps.
