I've been reading several forums, blogs and other posts on the internet for quite some time now and have found very few answers related to the condition that match what I am currently experiencing. I have small white bumps due from a fungal infection (onchomyosis-nail fungus in my case, but bumps can be caused too by athletes foot). Those bumps are exsist on the left and right palm, close to my thumbs, and there are about 15 all together. If popped, they are clear in fluid and dry then peel and crack. Leaving behind "wrinkley looking skin". Then they heal and return again. They will always come back until the fungus has been rid of.

I currently have a fungal infection on both of my big toenails (almost gone-had it since March 08') and now on my left thumb (as of a month ago). Ever since I had an ingronw toenail that became infected because I saw the doctor a little too late, I had the ingrown nail removed and developed a fungal infection on the left big toe. I've since been treating it with white vinegar twice a day and it's nearly gone. It would have taken a shorter time than 6 months had I been more diligent with the treatment the first 2 months. My right big toe is half way cleared and new healthy nails are coming in. On my left thumb, it just started about a month ago and now I'm treating it too with white vinegar twice daily. I believe its on my thumb because I did not clean my hands and feet and/or instruments for pedicure as well as I should have so it spread. Do be careful of that. Anyway, just thought I'd comment on my experience with these bumps. Thanks!
