    It’s that time of year. If you don’t have poison ivy/oak/sumac on your property, then you may have walked through it somewhere else. Most likely it’s on the bottom of a shoe. Every time you put on or take off that shoe you may touch the oils, and reinfect your hands. Don’t use anything with camphor or menthol in it to treat this. READ THE LABEL. You’d be surprised how many “itch relief” lotions are out there that make it worse, not better. See a doctor. S/he will give you a steroid shot, and a couple weeks worth of prednisone if it is determined that poison oak is what it is.

    It depends on whether this is aggravated during certain seasons or when handling certain substances. This may be an allergy related or contact dermatitis. However, there is a skin condition known as dyshidrotic eczema (or phompholyx) which presents with itchy water blisters on the fingers. This is often aggravated during times of stress, etc and the exact cause is unknown. You should see a dermatologist who can advise you further.
