im trying to figure out what the hell this is that appears on my hands...

appears a couple times a year, only on my hands, last 3-4 days then it goes away.

this time it coincided with having the flu, maybe a total immune breakdown? ive tried making doctors appointments in the past when it surfaces, but then it goes away so fast there is no point.

i took pictures this time though, lucky you ;)

any ideas?

Nasty. I occasionally get a outbreak that looks a little like that, but not nearly as bad. The doctor says "contact dermatitis, should clear up in a couple days" and it does. Evidently I'm allergic to something, I just have no idea what. Usually happens during the winter when my skin is very dry and cracking, I guess it's more open to little particles then.

Do any of your gloves have a neoprene lining? Same material as wet suits. It is in a lot of gloves because it is stretchy and water proof. Some people are allergic to it.
Switch to all leather or cotton to see if there is a difference.
good luck

I Googled "contact dermatitis" and the first pic looks exactly like what you have.

I think it's herpes. :eek:

Lichen Planus.

I suffer from Lichen Planus, a skin disorder that looks similar when active. Is it around your wrists also? Fortunately, with treatment, I was able to get it under control. It zeroed in on my feet and my hands/wrists. Now, you can barely see the discolorations, but for a while it was horrible. Good luck.
