Red Bumps As Big As Pimples On The Palm And Instep Of The Foot?
Excuse me, I want to ask, right now my palms and instep and my palms (especially between the fingers) grow red lumps that are itchy pimples but when touched they become painful. Originally the bumps were only a little but now more and more. Activities and food that I eat before the symptoms appear is to visit the frozen shrimp processing plant (only in the office, not to the production department) and eat anchovies. Does the lump include an allergy? and what should I do to overcome it? thank you
