Vesicular dyshidrosi: Vesicular dyshidrosis is one of the most common and benign skin conditions. It occurs when there is some difficulty in sweating appropriately and the fluid accumulates in tiny blisters on the fingers. These may itch and when they dry up the skin may peel.

I was recently treated for scabies (last week) and now I have watery blisters appearing on my fingers. Is this a sign of scabies got treated twice over last 8-9 days, areas are clearing up but now I have clear watery blisters on the insides of my fingers

Treatment with a hydrating cleanser such as cerave hydrating cleanser, moisturize with cerave cream, and possible treatment with a steroid ointment would be helpful. It is possible that you have a reinfestation with scabies although that is difficult to determine without a skin scraping. I hope that helps. ...Read more
