Ive woken up this morning with small blisters covering all of my hands and fingers, its started of with one or two but as the morning has gone on they're just spreading all over my hands. They aren't itchy just painful and making it hard to do anything. I'm not allergic to anything and its never happened before, I was wondering if this has ever happened to anyone before?

Hand foot and mouth maybe?

Could it be the start of hand, foot and mouth disease ?

That looks and sounds like hand foot and mouth disease. Have you got kids or work with them?

If that’s what it is you have my utmost sympathy as it’s bloody horrible.

Yeah that looks exactly like HFM. Awful in adults I’m afraid.

I had this when I was going through some extreme stress. Dont think I had hfm but I never thought of that at the time. It cleared quite quickly. Maybe put some calamine lotion on it?

I had blisters like that when I had HFM

Do you have mouth ulcers too?

Turns out it is hand foot and mouth, enquired about it when i had an unrelated appointment! My 19 month old has had only 1 mouth ulcer and been hardly eating and really upset at night so I guess thats what has happened. Thanks for all the answers everyone. Anyone have any tips on how to help it?

Sorry that’s what it’s turned out to be, how are you feeling? I think painkillers were the only thing that helped, I could barely walk or hold a knife and fork to eat when I had it.

Hmm, best thing is paracetamol and hydrocortisone if it itches.
