Itchy finger bumps: Dyshidrotic eczema (dyshidrosis) is a very itchy rash of little bumps on the fingers, sometimes on the hands, & may occur on the feet. The bumps may have some fluid inside, but don't break open (unless one scratches harshly) like chicken pox or herpes sores. Dyshidrosis is not contagious, & occurs in people with sensitive skin, especially if they work in wetness like cement-mixing or dish-washing.
