Weird blisters on my hands?

Ok, I've recently sprouted a bunch of tiny (1/8th inch diameter) blisters on my hands. They're all over the backs of my fingers and around my knuckles. They are not from rubbing, working out, or anything like that. They have to have been caused by some sort of...something like bacteria, fungus, or something. The only thing I can think of is it could be caused by wearing the boxing gloves in class, which are probably never really cleaned on the inside.

Has anybody had this before, or do you know what the hell it is??? I'm afraid it could be some sort of staph or something that I could pass to the guys in the club, which would really suck.

Oh, and I'm not allergic to anything.

Are they small and whitish? They could be warts. I got some on my foot from walkin in the locker room. They aren't fun. I'd check with a doctor because it's good to treat planters warts before they get very big. Also warts are spreadable so id cover your hands up with bandages or guaze or something.

They're definitely not warts because I've had those before too, and they're different. These are sensitive, and if I pop one, it just keeps filling with pus. I have class tomorrow, but I think I'll clean them really good, and wrap them up so I don't pass this crap on. The warts I've had in the past didn't seem to have any feeling to them, and these are actually bubbly blisters. It's just weird.

It's an allergic reaction. It probably has been caused by wearing the gloves or maybe from your hand wraps. I got the same thing on the back of my heels from a plaster and my skin didn't like the adhesive or something. It started off as an ordinary rash then it bubbled up. After a while it itches like HELL, so I would get something for it now. I also wouldn't wrap it up or do anything to aggravate it.

I get these occasionally their just little bumps filled with plasma I normally just pop them and they go away. I haven't noticed anything that causes them they normally just appear on the sides of my fingers.

Thanks, that's what it seems to be at this point. They have been slowly going away, and the ones I've popped have almost lost the scabs.

Yeah, the gloves are pretty funky. Sometimes it's still warm and sweaty from the previous class, and it feels like I'm sticking my hands into the sticky bug-hole on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

LOL at the indiana jones thing. Can't you buy your own? And get new handwraps.
