My ten-year-old son has a painful rash on the palms of his

Customer Question

my ten-year-old son has a painful rash on the palms of his hand. The rash is almost invisible but there are slight bumps to be felt under the skin. It seems to happen mostly in the mornings but also sporadically during the day.This is mostly on the mounds of his palms below the fingers, and sometimes on the finger tips. What could this be?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Are the bumps painful?
Customer: about two weeks or so. the bumps are painful, but also the other parts of his skin.
JA: Is there anything else the Dermatologist should be aware of?
Customer: no, not that i can think of
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dermatologist about your situation and then connect you two.
