Related to complaints of lumps in the hand area, it should be supplemented with some information related to how many days ago the lump appeared and how the development of any shape changes, whether there is pus or discharge, how much the size of the lump, whether pain and itching are exacerbated by an exposure, is there a similar history, is there a history of other illnesses, whether the closest person experiences the same thing, is there a history of trauma or injury to the area of the skin. Based on complaints of lumps in the hands and feet there are several diseases that may be the cause, i.e.
Bacterial-related skin infections (folliculitis / furuncle)
Mite infections (scabies / scabies)
Skin inflammation due to exposure (dermatitis)
Bacterial-related skin infections (folliculitis / furuncle) usually occur when bacteria enter the open skin and the immune system is weak, the form can be like boils or dry in the form of crust. The appearance of the skin is usually in the form of small spots measuring about 0.5 - 1 cm that are reddish in color and sometimes contain pus. Symptoms experienced are sometimes accompanied by itching, pain, and palpable heat on the skin area.
Parasitic or scabies infection or scabies is a disease due to mites that will appear in the form of a red rash about 0.5 -1 cm in size that looks reddish shaped like a tunnel accompanied by a dominant itching rather than pain where itching especially at night. The rash spreads quickly with location especially on between fingers, armpits, groin, folds of hands, elbows, palms. Spreading through contact with similar sufferers.
Skin inflammation due to exposure to substances is an inflammation of the skin that is most often caused by substances that are irritative in most people (such as detergents, chemicals) or substances that are allergenic to a person (such as rubber, nickel). In this case the form of a red rash that varies in size around 0.5 - 3 cm in reddish color can be accompanied by fluid filled with itching and pain, the rash will usually improve if there is no exposure to the following substances.

Further treatment should be done by first establishing the diagnosis which is done by physical examination by a general practitioner or dermatologist.
