    I have tiny red bumps on my fingers, and they're really itchy. They're on the joints and also show up a little under my fingernail, and it hurts to pull on that skin.

    Hi there Some1,


    It's always best to get this type of thing checked out by a doctor, since there's no real way to diagnose over the internet, but it sounds to me like you may be describing something like dyshydrotic eczema. Often, those show up as tiny itcy blisters under the skin, and when they've popped they can make the skin peel. This type of eczema is often worse during warm weather or if you have your hands in water a lot. Of course, it may also be a rash of some type, so do talk to your doctor.


    In the meantime, here's a link to an article that may help:

    Good luck!

    it is a form of eczema. It usually appears in the warmer months and it is nowhere to be seen in the colder months. There is something that you could try that could work. if it doesn't go and see your doctor or dermatologoist for treatment.


    Try this if you want:  soak your hands in Epsom salts and warm water (warm enough to handle, but not too cold). do this twice a day for 20 minutes a day. Like I said, try this and if it doesn't work, go see a specialist.
