I used to get a small pin prick rash on the palms of my hands. Sometimes they would get a small amount of blood into them.

Please help me with this query: I used to get a small pin prick rash on the palms of my hands. I put it down to stress and never really got an answer as to what it was. They were like tiny little fluid filled blisters which itched like mad and if I scratched them they sort of all melded into one. Sometimes they would get a small amount of blood into them. I noticed that I no longer get them since I excluded gluten from my diet .

Hi,thanks for query.The reason for this could be some local or food allergy.Try to look to any particular thing which are you are handling for long time during the day,even a bad car or bike grip can lead to this.Apply some moisturizer over it,do not scratch them much,you can take anti allergic tablets for this.Bye.

Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

This condition what you have is called POMPHOLYX .Its a allergic condition esp to metals ,may be in some body who wears rings .
The only treatment is avoidance of allergen and applying topical steroids .In sever cases when the blisters burst ,one should start with oral antibiotic to prevent secondary infection with oral anti histaminics and topical steroids.If itching is sever then even oral steroids can be started .
It could be allergy to other things also as you mention (gluten products).

I hope this answers your query.
regards,
Dr.chawda
