i have bumps filled with clear liquid that vary in shape. They are very itchy. i have them on feet and hands now. If i do not pop them they gradually get bigger and form a honey comb effect of bumps(bubbles). I have tried cream after creams to no is getting worse and the itching is unbearable. I have popped and peeled the skin around it and inside it is crazy red and seperated into sections. I have also noticed that when a bump pops by themselves the bumps spread at a rapid rate. I'm concerned it might be contagious and don't know what kind of precautions to take for myself as well as my family.Please if anyone has experienced the same thing or knows about it please respond.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

From the description, it seems to be dermatophytid. This is a fungal infection which can result in the production such vesicles which are intensely itchy.

The treatment consists of applying an anti-fungal ointment like miconazole and you should get a good relief from the same.

I must admit that it is not possible to make an online diagnosis and for the same you’re requested to contact a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
