White bumps on hand, itchy, fluid oozing when popped. Bump on genitals also, not STD. What could it be?

hello, i have these bumps i get randomly on my hands and they are white, if i pop them clear fluid comes out and they itch sometimes. i went to the doctor today but he said he thinks its eczema but i know its not because my sister has that. sometimes i could have none on my hands and sometimes i ll have around 10 mostly on my fingers and wrist . i think it spread to my genitals but it is different there, i always have one big bump that is itchy and after a week or two it will scab up in the middle of the bump and then it moves to a different spot then does the same thing. i know its not an std because i was checked for that.please help

Hi there greg.

From your clinical description, it does not seem to be an STD & you say you have checked but why would you consider this theory?

Dermatology is a visual field & it is best if you were to upload an image of the lesions or go across to a dermatologist nearest you for a second opinion & perhaps do a skin biopsy.

Eczema is of different types & what your sister has may be a different variety.

What you have is probably pompholyx which is a type of eczema & is multifactorial.

However, do get yourself checked for Herpes 1 & 2 IgG & IgM.

Use of a topical fluorinated steroid may help resolve symptoms.

Good Luck!
