I have had this problem, as long as, I can remember. I actually can not remember the first time I had a breakout. My poor parents spent so much time and money, on doctors and never got an answer. When I was a small child the bumps only came up on my feet. It wasn't until I was in my early 20's that they started appearing on my hands. I use to have breakouts, at least 5 or 6 times a year. Luckly, for me I've on had one in the last two years. I just recently started seeing small bumps again. These made me think of looking it up on the internet. I've never met anyone with this condition. It is nice to know that there are people out there who know, that I'm not playing around, when I say that I've never had something itch, burn, and hurt so bad, in my life.
