What causes bumps in palm?

Started off with 3 tiny bumps in my right palm. Then, it started to peel, and the peeling surface gained more tiny bumps. I can see tiny grey dots within the bumps. Then those bumps start to peel, and this cycle doesn t seem to end. What could this be? I ve had eczema before but it was just peeling (no bumps). I m using betamethasone valerate but it is not getting better. What do I do?

Hello and welcome to HCM,
Formation of bumps and peeling off of the skin can be due to eczema itself.
The steroid that you are taking is appropriate for the eczema and the current symptoms will also respond to the steroids, however, consultation with your treating skin specialist is required for further management.

Thanks and take care
