Woke up this morning with tingling in my hand. These little blisteres have appeared about 15 of them on my palm. Do you think it's hand, foot and mouth?

Bites? Insects? bedbugs?

Thats Pompholx. I have exactly the same thing on the soles of my feet. Its incredibly itchy and very annoying.

When my son had Hand Foot and Mouth, he had little lumps/blisters like that on the soles of his feet. So, I know everyone else is saying Pompholyx (which Ive never seen) but to me it looks like HF&M......

Yes pompholyx / dyshidrotic eczema. I get it on the sides of my fingers. See GP for a strong steroid cream and for fuck's sack don't accidentally get it on your face or you'll end up with perioral dermatitis for months on end blush

Another vote for pompholyx. It's a pain, and itchy as fuck but my attacks don't tend to last long. Plus, I find bursting the blisters quite fun.

I'll take myself off to sporner corner now...
