Day 1=white SMALLER mosquito-like bite. Itchy.
Day 2=itchy and burning sensation on palm when washing hand.
=noticed red bumps, about 10 to 15 bumps
Day 3=red bumps, more than 40, itchy during & right after washing hands.
=doctor suspect SCABIES but was not sure. No skin scrap test done.
=MELATHION lotion pescribed to be applied to hand 2 times a day.
Day 4=red pinkish bumps, continue to apply Melathion.
Day 5=bumps dry up, no longer red, became hard, raised. felt like something tiny and hard buried under skin. No lotion.
Day 6=same as day5.
Day 7=noticed centre of bumps became fluid and darker than surrounding skin of bump. Not itchy.
Day 8=more bumps became fluid in centre. NoT itchy.
Day 9=re-applied Melathion at night as per doctor's instruction. same symptoms.
Day10=more and more bumps became fluid in centre. noticed one bump became red tiny dot, seems like bump puncture? Not itchy. Melathion at night.
Day11=ALL bumps has fluid in centre. 3 bumps became red with blood streak going deep inside under skin. Not itchy. Melathion at night.
Today is Day 11.

I dont think it is scabies as I read scabies mite will leave a trail of greyish line on skin. mine is clear individual bumps although it is kinda like a S curvy line.
It is not itchy at night or after hot shower as in scabies.

anyone know what this is??? it is making me crazy ...yucky feeling hands!!!
i am just afraid that eggs are growing in my palms and between fingers....eeeee!!!

Used alcohohol, bactine, and hydrogen peroxide.I am going to try excema medicine with steroids in in when I got to sleep tonight.I have atopic dermatitis most of the time, but nothing ever on my palmsbefore. So, my best of luck to you in finding out what the heck is going on!!!I will write again if I have any results...QUOTE=Unregistered;48475]Day 14 = 4 more new tiny mosquito-bites smaller version lookalike.
