Try high grade tea tree oil on it. It's antibacterial, antifungal, penetrating and antiseptic. Give it a day or so and I'll bet it's gone.

It could be a reaction to something you touch or it could be a form of eczema. I get something similar to that every summer and it drives me nuts. I put some hydrocortisone on it to help with the itching. If it doesn't seem to want to go away at all or seems to change size, you might want to have it checked out just to make sure you do not have anything inside making it look like a blister.

I had something like that on my thumb several years ago. I eventually went to my family doctor, who said it was a type of eczema and prescribed a steroid ointment to use on it. It went away. Periodically, I will get the beginnings of another bump like that on the side of one of my index fingers (usually if I have been doing a lot of cleaning or washing a lot of things by hand in really hot water).
Make an appt with your doctor, and get a diagnosis so you can treat it. It isn't necessary to see a dermatologist for something like this---and it'll take you 5 months to get in anyway.
Good luck. Itchy and painful is no fun.

Do you get your nails done often? It could be an infection. I used to get my nails done all the time, which would weaken your real nails and allow bacteria to grow and get under the real nail and cause infection.

When I used to get acrylic nails put on, I would get a reaction just like that for a few days following almost every time I went. If thats not it, maybe its a cleaner that you have been coming into contact with? Do you wear cleaning gloves or latex gloves? It could be a mild reaction to latex.... hope you get to the bottom of it. Goodluck

Eczema can be VERY itchy--like almost a fiery pain itchy. Is it like that? Try a steroid cream.



answers from Memphis on

Please go and have the doctor look at it...I am treating my son for a wart that is under his nail bed and let me tell you....the cost is unbelievable. They are treating it with genital wart cream and it cost us $600. (yes that is six hundred dollars) It does appear to be going away but if you can catch it before it gets too deep you will be much more happier.
