Causes of itching blisters on hands?

Blisters tend to form whenever a deeper layer of skin is damaged and the surface skin remains intact. A liquid filled pocket forms when this happens as the body sends serum and fluid to the site of the injury. The pocket that forms is known as a blister. Foreign objects under the skin, burns or abrasions are some of the common hand blister causes. Treatment of hand blisters involves keeping the blisters clean and intact until they can heal naturally. Hand blisters causes could also be due to Dyshidrotic dermatitis. This is a kind of eczema that is believed to be caused by excessive sweating. However, the direct co relation between the two has not been proved. Symptoms of this eczema include small blisters on the side and tips of the fingers and toes. After a few days, these small blisters form larger ones which cause pain and itching. Hand blisters causes also include blisters being formed as a result of trauma to the skin. Hand blisters may form if the area of the skin is rubbed too intensely, for instance, while riding a bike. Tiny itchy blisters on hands could be due to chicken pox. Herpes and pemphigus are two other hand blister causes.
