No, I do not get into poison ivy or oak every year at the same time of year. It is something in the air. Well maybe you mean spores?

Allergic reaction. Obviously seasonal. Check your activities to determine offending source. Try chickweed ointment.

Maybe. I am at a loss. It is not like a big deal, it goes away in few weeks. It must be a genetic allergy to something because my brother has them too.

If it's humid where you are it could be a type of heat rash. I get itchy red welts/blisters on my hands that sting when I scratch them and they usually appear when it's very humid. Methylated Spirits works for mine, I just dab it on my palms and let it evaporate, relieves the itch and the rapid cooling effect of the evaporation seems to ease the rash.

OP -

I used to have the same problem. For 26 years I had a house and every summer about this time I'd get those darn blisters. They would itch like crazy and then when I would break the blisters by either scratching of "biting" them the skin around them would be like dead to where I could peel it off.

Three years ago I sold the house and moved into a townhouse,,, and have NOT had a recurrence of the blisters.

The only think I can conclude is that it may have been something to do with grass clippings (as in when enptying out the lawnmowerr catcher bag and toughting the fresh clippings). To my knowledge there was no poison ivy or oak in my yard.

Good Luck!

P.S. FWIW, the blisters weren't all over my fingers. Instead they seemed to appear most often in the area of the knuckles.

I think you're onto something here! I TOO am alergic to mold (mildew, certain trees). Quite possibly the mold in the grass clippings is what makes the blisters. Do you mow grass in the summer?

Do you eat a particular food more at this time of year? Or maybe drink more alcohol? Some foods have more histamine than others.

Histamine-Rich Foods (including fermented foods):

* Alcoholic beverages, especially beer and wine.
* Anchovies
* Avocados
* Cheeses, especially aged or fermented cheese, such as parmesan, blue and Roquefort.
* Cider and home-made root beer.
* Dried fruits such as apricots, dates, prunes, figs and raisins (you may be able to eat these fruits - without reaction - if the fruit is thoroughly washed).
* Eggplant
* Fermented foods, such as pickled or smoked meats, sauerkraut, etc.
* Mackerel
* Mushrooms
* Processed meats - sausage, hot dogs, salami, etc.
* Sardines
* Smoked fish - herring, sardines, etc.
* Sour cream, sour milk, buttermilk, yogurt - especially if not fresh.
* Soured breads, such as pumpernickel, coffee cakes and other foods made with large amounts of yeast.
* Spinach, tomatoes
* Vinegar or vinegar-containing foods, such as mayonnaise, salad dressing, ketchup, chili sauce, pickles, pickled beets, relishes, olives.
* Yogurt

That sounds precisely like what I have been dealing with for seven years. Normally my flare ups only produce 4-5 spots and then go away but from time to time, they get nasty. I am still healing from one such nasty one last month. It took 4 weeks for it to spread and I ended up with 50-70 spots mainly on my hands and forearms but one or tweo on my legs. They are called vesicular rashes though the cause is beyond me. I have moved in the interim and still no change.

On the flip side, I am slowly dying from what the doctors can't figure out (they think it's strokes, then MS, then lupus, then pre MS, then venouse insufficiency, then an autimmune disorder of some cause. Basically they know jack. I've recently started with the Cleveland Clinic but they seem equallu useless - they just have access to better tests....

Anyway, I have also been DX'ed with chronic Anemia, EBV and Parvovirus B19 if that gives you any clues. SOme Parvo sufferers report such rashes long after the virus has suppposedly gone. Some biologist report that such viruses trigger autoimmune responses and eventually disorders. You probably dont even know if you have it (it was a suprise to me and I thought it funny as hell to find out I had Parvo :))

Anyway me ex said the same thing about poison oak or ivy. BS. First I never touch the stuff and if I do, I am not allergic like most people.

Anyway dont know if my story can help but try to think of if you have any other chronic symptoms, of any kind. Let us know as I am definitely interested.

Wow sorry you got all that. All I got is a an annoying itch once a year. I think most if it is just due to a whitey living in the jungle. I was meant for less humid climates.

OP you're describing tiny little blisters deeper under the skin than normal blisters with no redness 'til you scratch them right? Only on the fingers?

Used to get those too, the itch was maddening. Try sunblock on your hands when working outside. I thought it was a stupid idea, but hey it worked. I've never been overly sensitive to sunlight. Don't even burn very easily, but for some reason my fingers get these blisters anytime I'm in the sun for a while w/ no sunblock on them.

I've had those for years. They don't appear at any particular time of year, and I don't know what causes them. Sometimes they'll be on a finger, other times in my palms. Usually no more than four five. I bite 'em and they dry up. Dermatologist said dermatitis (IOW, a NON diganoses).

Hi Tabitha,
I am just wondering, do your blisters itch? Mine do not, but they are quite sore to the touch. If I look closely, I can see they look like very small clusters of fluid filled blisters... Also, it only happens to me in Fall/Winter, and I don't do any outside work... I am certain this
I also have autoimmune issues - inflammatory arthritis -- and anemia, and I get blisters that sounds similar to yours.
I hope you get a right diagnosis, and we both feel better!
