Itchy fingertip - ideas?(1 Post)
I'm looking for ideas on what could be causing one of my fingertips to be constantly itchy. It's the same finger (right index) and it has been like this for years. I often end up chewing it to "scratch the itch" and eventually the skin will kind of bubble up like the attached pic shows. If I peel that off it will just be fresh skin underneath and there is no fluid. It drives me insane! It only affects that finger and I haven't noticed a pattern in terms of what makes it better or worse. I do have quite dry sensitive skin but I can't work out why only one finger is affected.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
