Is this your finger or a family members? Do you also have whitlow but yours looks differently? I am just not clear as to whose finger this is--if it is yours, does it hurt or tingle?

Ok, a few clarifying questions--for your suspected whitlow on your finger/hand, how does it look and what does it feel like and have you been tested (via blood test) to see if you have the herpes virus (or, why do you suspect your issue on your hand/finger is herpes)? For your family member, why would you suspect this is herpes--do they think it is herpes or had contact with herpes?

I will provide a photo of my bumps on my palms, but i had (protected) sex with someone who has ghsv. Type unknown.. but i kissed him, also had some hand foreplay, now i had a old cut on my palm. It was mostly healed.. so i started getting these clear bumps on my palms my doc says its Dyshidrotic eczema, but i get tingling in my fingers, and in the side of my hand. Ive been to 2 othr doc. That says eczema too . Ive had 3 igg. And two swabbs (diff. Areas) all neg. BUT that fam. MEM. Is my daughters finger. Even tho ive been wearing gloves\ mittens i still think she could have gotten it .. it doesnt seem to bothr her. Its only noticeble when her hands are red. Not so much when they arnt.
