  • ya I know exactly what you're talking about.. i used to get them all the time, if you pop them theres clear liquid inside.. i came to the conclusion that they are an allergic reaction to something, i used to play softball and I think i was allergic to the leather from my glove. because my left glove hand always had those weird and sorta embarassing bumps (which kinda look like warts too but i've also had those when i was a kid and theres def. a difference).. i haven't played for a year or two and never had them since.. so see if theres anything you could be allergic to and try to do something about it.. i never could, they are a pain in the butt.. but at least they'll go away.. have a good one..

  • I have eczema and that is exactly what it looks like. It usually forms on hands and it's itchy and will spread sometimes. I just put an OTC medication on it called Caladryl Clear and it usually goes away in a few days. Try to avoid scratching it, though, because it can cause it to spread, ooze and get infected. Caladryl is a poison ivy/bug bite/etc. medication, but it does the job on eczema as well. ;)

  • Looks like poison oak/ivy to me. You can buy homeopathic preparations at your local health food stores. Be careful not to rub your eyes or privates since it can spread. It it spreads to those areas or gets out of control, you'll need a shot of cotisone to bring it under control.
