    What can bumps on hands, no puss, itchy scab like dots on face, dryness. Be?
    :( My boyfriend has small bumps on his hands. NO puss, just small bumps that itch. My boyfriend also has eczema, and he knows he has sensitive hands and skin, however, he has never gotten such a reaction like this. The bumps itch and are small.

    The thing is that he also has small red bumps,but more like scab like dots on his face and outside mouth area, where it itches so much, he tells me he wished he could wrip them off and hand them to Although we find ways to make this situation a little humorous, I still can't help but to wonder if he's going to be OK, if there is a cure, or if this condition will ever stop.:confused:

    He currently found a website where it mentions a certain type of condition that people with eczema could get called Pompholyx.
    Now the first stage photos do look similar to what he has... however, the rest of the pics say they are secondary, and well they don't look like what he has. AND the pictures and description only mentiones the bumps being found in areas like the hands and feet-not mouth or face.Although they look different from the bumps on his hands, they still do itch very much.

    Can I get some information or help?
    As far as: how you have dealt with the bumps, have they gone away, what have you done to try to get rid of them?

    I'd like to see what my boyfriend will have to deal with, or look for when having such a skin condition.

    BTW here is the website I mentioned he found:

    Pompholyx (dyshidrotic eczema, vesicular hand eczema). DermNet NZ

    The sensible thing to do would be to get him to visit his G.P. and work it out from there, he must be diagnosed before any treatments. X
