For the past couple of months (since august) i have been dealing with a skin condition on my hands and feet. I get raised, fluid filled blisters on the palms of my hands, on and in-between fingers and toes. My regular doctor (a pediatrition) says that its being alergic to soapy hot water. I have tried to keep my hands out of warm soapy water, even putting on gloves in the shower. But they still appear. I've tried using steroid creams, but those seem to make it worse. The only thing that makes it better is (oral) steroid pills. But as soon as I finish the perscription, the blisters come right back and worse. I'm begining to feel defeated. The doctors don't seem like they know whats wrong with me or how to fix it. I'm in a lot of pain. It's to the point I can't hold or touch anything. I wake up in my sleep because it burns or itches. Please, help me!! Or if anyone else has this problem, I would like to know I'm not alone.

Thanks!

  • My stepdad had something similar and it was because he had poison ivy oils on his steering wheel. Any chance you were exposed and the oils are present somewhere that you grasp? He washed everything (car, tools, etc.) with a poison ivy soap and it went away.Just an idea to consider. Good luck to you.
