Blistery rash on middle fingers

janeytrace profile image

Hi

I have had a crop of blisters in a pattern on the lower section of each of my middle fingers I think it started after a very hot day we had and holding hands with my grandson who also had sweaty hands. His mum says he hasn’t got a rash as well so I don’t think it’s infectious although very itchy. I’m itchy in other areas of my body too but no rash except occasionally hives on my calves and a vasculitic rash on my calves. Itchiness keeping me awake at night and uncomfortable during the day. I regularly take amitryptiline for sleep and montleukast which I think is an immunosuppressant. Currently taking cetirizine using anusol and body moisturiser soaking skin in lukewarm water but nothing is helping. I don’t know what’s causing it they start to form dry crusts and the blister gets smaller but turns orange then more keep popping up. Any ideas or advice welcomed.

Suggest that you send photo and description to your GP and see what happens.

Thanks for replying. I would normally but locally there seems to be a problem with the service for a few weeks now. I saw pharmacist today and she thinks it’s allergy to something, plant or bug as that’s what’s new that I’ve touched since moving home lately. She said to keep using the piriton I started yesterday as cetirizine not been effective at stopping whole body itch. Thought I’d share that for those with itchy skin conditions ‘piriton works better’ she said if the rash still doesn’t go that I would need to see dr. Very helpful this was the pharmacist in Tesco 😎👍😀

Hi

I have had this before and when it became really bad I went to see a dermatologist, he diagnosed it as pompholyx, a type of hand eczema, he prescribed a steroid cream which got rid of it, and cetraben 3 in 1 ointment, which I wash my hands with and also use as a moisturizer, it now keeps it at bay.

Hope this helps.

Thank you

So glad you found a helpful pharmacist, I think they are a much underused resource in our communities. Pomphlyx eczema generally starts as a wee patch of tiny blisters that are horribly itchy then dry out and crack, mostly found on palms of hands and soles of feet.

Thank you

You could try natural progesterone cream I am sure it would help you can buy it online / ebay make sure it has progesterone usp in the ingredients
