    Hi!  I can't really say that I get blisters,but others might.  Are they really bad for you?  Where are they located?

    Hi Sicksals.

    Now that is interesting and so glad you brought this up because yes, I do get this. Never quite sure why or if it's related to ME but has probably been going on for about the same length of time - on and off. What happens is I get tiny little blisters on the palms of my hands and fingers. They are sometimes a bit tender  but quite tough and hard to break. They contain a watery fluid. After they have finished i get a little circle of dry skin where each one was and the skin flakes and peels. Is that how your's is? I have put it down to an unknown allergy - like maybe certain soaps or chemicals that I have had contact with. It comes and goes - like many of the strange symptoms we have so could well be linked.

    Hi sicksals,

    It is interesting that you have posted this as the past few days my symptoms have started to worsen and I too have got these little fluid filled blisters and hard dry skin mainly on my fingers; I mentioned to my fiancé that this happened before my last flare up.

    My experience with this is very similar to olivetree' post as this has been coming and going for the past few years but I am noticing it does get worse when my others symptoms flare up.

    A couple of years back I had a very bad infection after I had popped some of these blisters on my finger so now I just leave theme alone. ?

    I also start to get very itchy all over my legs and torso and I tend to get a rash that breaks out on my torso and back. (The rash looks worse after showering then slowly dissappears)

    In the past I have put this down to a reaction to something but now I wonder if this is an effect of cfs/me.

    I am waiting for my appointment with a cfs/me specialist so I will mention this to see what they believe it could be.
