My husband and I returned from the Dominican Republic one week ago. A few days after getting home, my husband noticed he had a blister on the pad of one of his fingers. It remained for a few days and then dried up and seemed to be healing now, although he says it is still a bit painful. Four days after returning home, I noticed a small red bump on my ring finger, just above (medial to) the knuckle. I thought it was an ingrown hair and tried to squeeze it. It only hurt when I did that. By the next evening, it had turned into a blister, a it kept draining clear fluid and then re-blistering. Three days later, (yesterday) it stopped blistering and is now just bright red, raw looking skin and painful. There is still a bit of blister around the edge on one side. It has never itched and I never noticed anything bite me. I have tried putting aloe Vera or lanacane, an anti-itch/burn cream on, both provide temporary relief. Does anyone know what this is caused by? Treatment? Thank you so much for your help!
