You : You may be dealing with a fungal infection. Try an over the counter anti-fungal cream like clotrimazole; you can apply the cream twice a day for a week. If you do not notice an improvement then it may just be a dermatitis and you may need a stronger steroid cream. At this point you would need to be evaluated by your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

My left hand in the palm has been sore for a couple days especially when I stretch it. Today a small bump appeared. It's not a bug bite but it itches?

My left hand in the  palm has been sore for a couple days especially when I stretch it. Today a small bump appeared. It's not a bug bite but it itches?

Bump on palm: Hard to say for sure without an exam, but ganglion cysts feel like little bumps underneath the skin and sometimes they can be sore. If it's on the surface of the skin (you can see it with your eyes), it could be an inflammatory reaction to something - a bug bite, trauma, or something else entirely. Hydrocortisone cream can work well for itchy spots, and if not improving, get it checked out! ...Read more
