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

Brief Answer:
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.

two months ago I did two hydrocolonics in one week. after each colonic there was gel like substances with red squiggly lines coming out and minimal blood on the toilet paper. Ever since that I have been having a problem with food feeling like it gets stuck in the middle of my chest, burping a lot and a pain in my left back shoulder blade that radiates down my arm and up to my ear. It seems like when I eat fruits and vegetables I am fine with things not getting stuck in the middle of my chest but, protein and fats may be what causes the problem. My last cbc blood work showed my WBC count is 3.8 normal range between {4.0-12.0} K/UL my NEUTROPHIL count is 36.0 normal range between {41.0-71.0} % and my LYMOPHOCYTE count is 46.9 normal rainge is {24.0-44.0}%. I have been having these types of numbers for over nine years and my doctor doesn think anything about it. after researching on line I am questioning whether I could have the hpylori infection and a peptic ulcer. I ate some fruit about a year ago that my husband brought home from a market and got a pain so bad on my right lower abdomen that I could barely walk. I went and did a hydrocolonic and was able to get through it. I also have low vitamin d- 32 reference range: 30-100 unit ng/ml I also have high cholesterol 221 {140-200)mg/dl triglycerides 33 {30-150}mg/dl HDL 87{35-65}mg/dl chol/hdl ratio 2.54 {2.00-4.50}ratio VLDL 7 {6-30} mg/dl LDL 127 {70-130}mg/dl I am 46 years old and weigh 118lbs I am 5 2 . I jog and go to the gym at least 4 times a week.. I eat very healthy.. tons of fruits and vegetables and fish and chicken.. not much sugar or breads or pastries... on weekends we do drink beer and eat somewhat off but still not too bad... I am into natural remedies. Do you have any ideas what could be going on?
