Finger problem - looks like blister but hurts more

Hi there,

My girlfriend has got a growth on the side of her finger which started yesterday and looked like a blister (see attatched pictures taken this morning) - since then it has grown a lot bigger than a normal blister, plus she has not done anything to cause a blister to grow. She also tells me it hurts a lot even when it's not touched, which sounds worse than a blister because I get them a lot through drumming and they never seem to hurt me.

Anyone got any ideas about this?

  • Did you ever find out what this was, my daughter woke up with the same thing this morning?

  • Blimey, it was by pure chance that I got an email informing me that you'd posted - I haven't been on the site since this post a year and a half ago!I can't really remember much about, so that must mean that it went on it's own accord after a few days. By all means see the GP if you're concerned, but I expect it'll vanish soon.Good luck and Merry Chirstmas!!!

  • Hang on, my girlfriend just told me that she actually went to the pharmacist who gave her some sort of cream to apply to it - so much for my memory!
