I have several small blister like sores on my finger. They itch and when I rub them they seem to be watery. They are now opened sores and I have no idea how I got this. It is only on my middle finger on my right hand, but I have noticed a tiny small red bump (itching) between two of my fingers on my left hand. I ve used cortisone cream and I ve kept it bandage, as it looks bad. Do you have any recommendations on how to treat this or do you know what is causing these sores?
