I have little red itchy oozing bumbs on both sides of my hands. They are spreading to my fingers. I have dark itchy spots all over my body as well. Help!

Red oozing bumps: You may have hand dermatitis which is a form of excema. It is made worse by washing your hands alot.

I cannot speculate on your other spots, unless you shower alot with a harsh soaop and do not use a moisturizer. You could also have folliculitis if some bumps look like pimples. ...Read more

Hives/Urticaria: Sounds like hives. Most common cause is infection (often very minor in nature) resulting in activation of innate immune/autoimmune pathways in skin that trigger mast cells. Usually, hives resolve and we never know the cause. For other causes: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/137362-overview#aw2aab6b2b3aa. A virtual consult to discuss triggers can help.

Eczema?: This time of year the most likely thing is eczema, but rashes can be hard to diagnosis. You can try using a thick emollient twice daily all over and hydrocortisone cream on the rough or itchy areas. You should have your skin examined if you are not doing much better in 2 weeks. Itching itself can sometimes be a sign of internal illness, so lab work may also be warranted. ...Read more
