Strange Reoccuring blisters
cbl2882 posted:
For longer then I can remember I've gotten tiny under the skin blisters every spring that last thru summer. They're only on my fingers. Sometimes they're in clusters of up to a dozen and other times there's just one. They pop under the skin and then I get peeling skin. The skin above the blisters gets a little red and they're a tiny bit irritated but nothing painful. Just irritating. Just wondering if anyone else has something similar or knows what they are.

Dear Cb,

The most common cause of these types of blisters are either dyshidrotic eczema vs pustular psoriasis. Both can be treated with prescription topicals. Next time you experience a flare, see if you can get in to see your dermatologist.

I hope that helps! Both are very common conditions, you do not need to live with them!
