    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.
    Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
    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!
