A 25-year-old male asked:
Can washing your hands too much cause little clear warts on your hand?

Skin & hand washing: Washing hands too frequently and/or using harsh soaps can worsen or even provoke eczema eruptions. In one form of hand eczema called dyshidrotic dermatitis, there can be small clear fluid filled vesicles under the skin, giving a "tapioca pudding" appearance. Washing hands too much does not give rise to warts.
