I all of the sudden got blisters in between my fingers and on my knuckles. What can be causing this?

Doctor can check: Rashes and bumps are hard to describe in words, and harder to visualize. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate to see what the blisters might be. One possibility is dyshidrosis or dishydrotic eczema, which causes small itchy firm blisters on the hands and fingers. Another possibility is hand-foot-mouth disease, which is a viral infection which causes rashes plus mouth sores. Read more

I have 5 small blisters between my ring and my knuckle. My finger is swollen in that area and I am unable to remove my ring. Can you tell me why?

I have 5 small blisters between my ring and my knuckle. My finger is swollen in that area and I am unable to remove my ring. Can you tell me why?

Soap under ring: I can think of to possible causes. You may be allergic to the metal that your ring is made of. If you have no problems with any other metals, then you may get soap caught under your ring when you wash your hands. The soap causes an irritant dermatitis and maybe because of the rash. You need to see a dermatologist as soon as possible. Read more

I can suggest that you look into medical acupuncture to decrease stagnation of blood, lymph, electrical (nerves) energy and qi. I have seen remarkable improvement in numbess, pain and range of motion with medical acupuncture. Read more
