No: Leave the blister alone. You can apply anti-itch cream or medication to relieve the discomfort, but the blister will eventually open on its own or recede. Popping it may make it more prone to secondary infection. ...Read more

Probably right: It does sound like you have dyshidrosis or eczema of the hands. This is usually treated with topical cortisone creams, decreasing the number of times a day you wash your hands, using a mild soap and rubber gloves with cotton gloves underneath them when you do the dishes. This is usually worse in the winter and better in the summer. You should see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Itchy fingers: Several conditions can cause this. Eczema is a common cause of itchy rash on fingers. If a painful blister appears at intervals, it could also be a bacterial infection or a viral infection such as herpes, called herpetic whitlow when on the fingers. Please see your dermatologist when you have the blister. It can be opened, cultured for viruses and bacteria. Stains can also be done for diagnosis. ...Read more

Was it scabies?: Water blisters on the fingers sounds a little different from a scabies infection to the skin. Consider seeing a dermatologist. Otherwise if irritated w/o infection, can try Hydrocortisone over the counter. Good luck. ...Read more
