Random Sliver Like Spot In Finger
0

7 posts in this topic

So for maybe the past year (haven't been tracking as I never thought it was connected to gluten) I get these random sore spots on my fingers/palms. I wondered if any of you DH experts had anything similar. Some details:

1. Only get one at a time

2. Last a few days to a few weeks

3. A very small, pimple size bump

4. Flesh colored, so not red, or inflamed, or discolored. If you tried to find it w/out me pointing it out you wouldn't notice it.

5. No push or fluid. No blister or boil. Just a bump you can feel

6. Sometimes a barely visible red or dark dot at the center

7. Painful when you push or rub against it. That's the only indication it is there and how I will first notice it. It feels like a sliver or tiny paper cut but there's nothing there.

I mostly get them on my index finger, just below the meaty pad of my finger tip. I've had one on my middle finger (same approximate location) and one on the palm of my hand near the fleshy section between my thumb and index finger. I have had them on both hands so not related to callus or blister from holding a pen/pencil for example. I don't think it's a wart because it never develops into anything. It mysteriously appears, again I notice it like I'd notice a sliver, and a week or so later it's just gone. Then I forget about it until the next one randomly appears on some other hand, finger, palm. Repeat. A google search yields quite a few people asking similar questions but no good answers.

Any ideas?

I'm going to start tracking on my food log now. It never dawned on me to do so.

Hi Birdie,

My hunch is that I'd be suspicious of other things before DH. A few of the characteritics don't seem to be prominent features, but there's no such thing as normal DH so who knows! Probably the most contra-indicitive seems to me to be the 'only one at a time' thing. DH lesions can come in groups or individually, but usually you would see multiples all at various stages.

Best wishes!

When they go away does the skin around where the bump was peel? My palmoplantar pustular psoriasis started with just one or two bumps like that. At first they didn't look like the whithead pimples that they do now when I get a flare. They too were just bumps. Then they would go away and I would get a new one someplace else. Eventually I got more and more spots until my hands were covered, from wrist to fingertips.

Do you get them on your feet too?

Hi birdie, it doesn't sound much like dh. There's a chance it's pre-dh but really it sounds more like something else --- I don't know what but it isn't really ringing any bells for dh at this time.

I wonder if it could be herpes?

For years I had a few small blisters appear and disappear in the same spot on my index finger. Apparently it was a herpes virus in the skin. The bumps finally just went away and never came back.

Doesn't peel, not really a blister, just a bump, never in the same spot twice, none on feet or anywhere else just hand/finger. The one from last week is almost gone 5 days later.

Ah, not herpes then! It was always in the exact same spot. Hopefully your food log tells you something.

    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
