Brief Answer:
pompholyx is the possibility

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.
I have seen the attached pic also. Thanks for attaching the pic.

It seems that you are suffering from a condition called pompholyx. It is a type of eczema characterized by itchy or asymptomatic bumps involving palms.

I would like to know the following details :
1 ) what is the duration of the disease?
2 ) any other site of body involved?
3) any treatment taken?

Kindly reply to my questions and get back to me so that I can help you to my best.
Stay healthy.

the bumps never itch so pompholyx is unlikely in my view

detail follows

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome again.

Pompholyx is not always itchy. But it is an easily treatable condition. In some cases, it settles down of its own without any treatment.

In pompholyx patients, usually moderate to strong potency topical steroids are advised to be applied over the lesions. The condition most of the times respond to the treatment within 2-3 weeks.
Additionally I also advise my patients to put lots of moisturisers preferably over semi wet body so as to prevent the recurrence of the lesions to some extent.
As per details, it is my best advice for you. If you have any further query you may ask me.
Stay healthy.

Hi. I am 38 years old. I made 10 IVF failed attempts. Last one was 75 days ago and I have a very light period 10 days after the pregnancy test then I dont have period. I test estradiol and progestrone after 42 days of the last period and estradiol was 89 while progestrone was 0.1. My Doctor presceibed me progyluton after 55 days of the last period. My question : does this mean that i am in premature monopose? and is progyluton useful in my case and does it have a side effects? Thanks a lot

I have a question about heart rates and health in general. When I work out my heart rate seems all over the place. Today it went down to 55 and then jumped to 145 and then back down to 55 depending on how I was breathing. Is this dangerous? I feel completely fine. I thought that there might be something wrong with the machine I was using, but I tried the same thing on another machine and had similar results. One time, my heart rate went as high as 232. Also, when I sleep, my heart rate sky rockets after feeling really cold and waking up. I was told I m having panic attacks without anybody actually checking me out or running any tests. I used to be on medication for depression, but I stopped taking it because it seemed like the medication made these episodes worse. It s as if my body is thinking backwards in these situations. I m learning to just live with it, but I can t help but wonder why it happens to begin with. It doesn t seem normal. Also, my cholesterol was a little high at a health screening, so I ve cut back on dairy, and I don t eat a lot of junk food to begin with. I ve been to the doctors several times, but they just tell me my heart is healthy and sounds good. I wish people could see what s going on while I m sleeping or while I m exercising because those are the times I m really having issues. Any insight, suggestions, or advice would be appreciated.
