Red Itchy Bumps On Back Of Hands
I have some small red itchy bumps on the back of my hand. They come and go every week or so. What is this?
Hand eczema: The most common causes are irritant (too much hand washing) or contact allergy. Pay attention to the type of soap and hand preparation to see it changing the brand would help (no scented, anti-bacterial soap) or gel). If you wash you hands too often, consider wearing a non-latex glove on some of the chores and apply a lotion after washing whenever possible as well as reducing hand washing

Raised itchy bumps/hives on top of hands, and wrists itchy - leave red lines when I scratch them?? causes? Doesn't seem allergy related
Contact allergy?: If the problem is confined to the hands and wrists, then a contact allergy should be suspected (soap. Lotion, latex gloves, chemicals). Topical hydrocortisone cream may help but avoidance is the only answer. May consult a dermatologist if problem persists since patch skin test may well reveal the culprit.

Small red raised itchy bumps on hands and feet for 2 weeks. Has about 20. No improvement with steroid cream. Dr has no idea what they are.
Possible infection: Do the bumps come and go? If so, then they may be hives that would respond more effectively to antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec. If they remain in place and develop any white or black heads, then a topical antibiotic like Bacitracin or prescription bactroban applied twice daily would help.

Red itchy bumps on my wrist it started off small and now expanded into more and the original one is swolen. I pulled weeds a week b4 symptoms?
Hard to tell: It is very difficult to determine the cause of a rash without seeing it. The bumps could be from scabies, which is a mite obtained from contact with others who have this. Other causes would be an allergic reaction to something you've been exposed to such as plants outside, or soaps. It could also be a medication reaction. There are also many skin diseases that can cause bumps. I suggest being seen
Itchy bumps: These itchy bumps may be insect bites or hives. The latter would suggest an allergic reaction. Antihistamine medications like benadryl (causes drowsiness) or claritin (nondrowsy) should relieve itching. If these bumps continue to appear, have them examined by your physician or dermatologist.
