I have been getting these red spots all over my palms and soles at regular intervals for almost ten years now.Thankfully the intensity and frequency has decreased greatly for the past couple of years.I would still like to know and if anyone else has suffered the same symptoms.

The spots go away after a couple of days.They are highy sensitive to pressure and temperature both hot and cold. The nails hurt and it feels as if they are being pulled out.After the spots go away the skin on the palms and soles start peeling away.

Prior to these red spots flaring up I always used to get a combination of a few other things like an upset stomach(Some years back I was regularly suffering from bouts of bad dysentery and really painful stomach aches..enough to keep me awake at night,,these too became mider over the years),body aches,mild fever, and always most of the times a sore throat/cold.

so essentially :sore throat/cold+upset stomach --> red spots.I could almost predict it every time.The doctor gives me an anti histamine,he said there were bugs in my blood..but i dont think the anti histamines helped much ..in fact just made me very drowsy for 2 days.

  • I am just 29 this has been happening since the last 10 years.I don't have diabetes or fungal infections.. The doctor last diagnosed it a long time back so i dont really remember but i think some kind of amoebic blood infection(is that stupid?!!) I stopped going to him coz he didnt really seem to help.
