Customer Question
Hi I have had...

Hi I have had painful what seems to be like callouses on both hands (palms, on my R first digit and left middle finger. What concerns me is that they itch and they disappear at times but will come back red, inflamed and itchy. When they get inflamed and grow I see dark spots in them. Please let me know what this could be?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

For about three years. Usually when I drive a car but now it flares up even when I haven't been driving which concerns me.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Recently I found out I had gallstones during a flush. In the ER they performed an ultrasound and Xray which did not confirm any stones but I passed hundreds a week later after my flush. I am still itching all over now. I am on my second flush and this week I plan on doing a colon cleanse afterwards.

On the right you can see what looks like a callous that doesn't hurt now. Then in the middle a previous "callous" that's not a lump anymore but has flattened and flaked. When I do hurt both my hands get inflamed at the same time and for lumps or the lumps there get bigger , and inflamed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
