What Causes Blood Blisters On Hands
Trauma: Usually it is the result of trauma such as rough food (taco chip?), or suction. But if it doesn't disappear within a week -10 days, call your dentist to check it. If it doesn't resolve it might be something more serious. Please follow up on this. ...Read more
A blood blister forms when skin and small blood vessels are damaged without breaking the skin. Trapped beneath the skin surface is some blood and skin fluid. Blood blisters are commonly caused by accidents in which the skin is pinched by a tool or a heavy weight, or they may occur from constant ...Read more
Alien Abduction?: In general, a blister is caused either by thermal injury, extreme cold injury or extreme friction and/or pressure applied intensely and/or for prolonged time period. Blood may or may not accumulate, but is usually from friction. If a blister just pops up out of nowhere you might consider a bizarre"autoimmune"problem (what kind depends on your age, etc)but blood blisters between every digit? You a jogger? ...Read more
Keep it covered: This is usually caused by a sever pinch to the skin that breaks a small blood vessel under the skin, but does not cut the top layer of skin. A small amount of blood then accumulates under the skin. It will go away with time. You can apply ice to help with any swelling. Keep it covered with a bandaide. Resist the temptation to puncture it with a needle. This could cause an infection. ...Read more
Possible, but...: There are many things that mimic "blood blisters" that would appear on a baby's hand. First thing that comes to mind is a developing hemangioma. These are collections of blood vessels under the skin that enlarge over the first months of life. Also, babies can have sucking blisters where they essentially give themselves hickies from sucking on their hands. Ask pediatrician to take a look. ...Read more

I have been waking up with random blood blisters on my right hand? I take no meds and there have been no injuries.
Red painful raised bump on hand. Slowly growing looks like blood blister but feels like splinter in it. Suddenly appeared?
Infection Likely: I would make sure to have this evaluated by your doctor. Given your medical history and the medications you are taking (Humira), you might have a skin infection that will require doctor-directed care. Your immune system is suppressed due to the Humira, (adalimumab) so you are more at risk for getting skin infections. Get it checked out. ...Read more
Nothing, as: Long as there are no signs of infection (increased redness, swelling, warmth, pain). This blood will reabsorb on it's own. Do not try to puncture or "burst" it, as you will increase the chance of introducing infection. If you notice signs of infection, contact her pediatrician immediately. ...Read more

May have knocked blood blister on man and little bleeding cuts on hands what's the chances I will get hep c or hiv?
Not likely: It is unlikely to get hepatitis c or HIV from brief exposure to blood. Of course it is impossible to get hep c or HIV from a man that does not have the virus in the first place. Hopefully you know this man and can ask him if he has hepatitis or not. Hepatitis b is much more contagious, and there is a vaccine for this, so see your doctor and make sure you are immunized! ...Read more
I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?
Unclear: Blood blisters are usually painful, and related to pressure or trauma though not infrequently there may be no recollection of a specific event. They can take several weeks to resolve as the blood gets reabsorbed by the body. A mole typically is not painful, and would not change much over a month. So time would likely help answer this question for you. If worse, please have it examined. ...Read more

I have a small raised rash on the back of one hand it itch's and burns, and when drying it with a towel sometimes it looks like tiny blood blisters?
A photo would help: Have you been out in the garden lately and been pricked by a thorn or touched poison ivy? It sounds like an allergic reaction however; we cannot rule out herpetic whitlow which gives the same symptoms burning pain tingling, sometimes swelling. You could have acquired it from another part of your body or someone elses. For now avoid sharing towels as it is contagious. See your doct for diagnosis. ...Read more
