Hey all, hopefully someone can shed some light on my situation. Recently I've noticed these lumps popping up all over the top of my hands and my fingers; the ones on the fingers are larger, but nothing bigger than 4-5 mm. They almost look like tiny wart (but aren't) and the larger ones have a clear dot in the middle which is where the plasma fluid has collected. They grow up from under the skin and if popped (gross, I know) its a gel like clear plasma fluid which drains out.

I got them check out and a doc said that they were most likely a viral infection and would go away in 3-6 weeks; it could be any number of viruses apparently.

Any insights at all would be appreciated, if you need more info just ask.

  • I think Im getting similar symptoms. They are brown and cauliflowerish, but mine are located on my forearms. It started as one 5 months ago and now I have 11! If you find out anything hook me up. These things dont itch or hurt, but they are annoying!

  • OP: Sounds like exczima (sp?) to me.. Do either of your parents or grandparents recognizse it? My mother and grandfather have it, as do I. Are the bumps itchy?

  • Yeah, I get that, little bubbles of lymph fluid. Does it itch like crazy sometimes? Probably contact dermatitis. Doctors gave me Fucibet (UK perscription) cleared it up after a few days. Its not serious.

  • I think I used to have that... It kept popping up and going away until it got almost serious... I could move my hands unless the skin cracked... I went to a doctor and he gave me some creme to put on twice a day and another one for when I went to sleep... Already the next day I felt a huge difference and after a week it was gone :)
