Should I worry about this?

By Karen McBoob on May 21, 2015 in Blog, Featured Articles, Humor

I get these tiny blisters on the sides of my fingers, but only when I worry. Should I be worried?

I asked Google, but I couldn’t find any answers that seemed to pertain to me. Oddly, Google responded with a lot of irrelevant articles about cold sores and STDs, and some very frightening pictures under an image search for “worry blisters on my fingers,” one of which looked suspiciously like a penis (because it was a penis! Talk about immediate click regret). That’s an epic fail in google’s part … amirite? I even entered my search phrase in quotes … like this:  “worry blisters on my fingers” … and Google still thought I wanted to see a picture of a penis with pustules on it. No Google!  Not even close!

Here’s a screenshot of what google showed me (You may want to skip this part and scroll down quickly … it cannot be unseen):



My search for information about “worry blisters” was a bust. I figured I’d try to crowd source an answer here. Leave a comment below if you have any ideas on what these blisters are. Leprosy? Some other flesh eating disease caused by stress? A penis blister that can spread to hands, transmitted through money handling? (That one guy at our local gas station looks a little skanky).

I need to know how worried I should be, and also, how quickly I should start getting my affairs in order.

    I would get that checked out. You’d hate to find out too late that you have hand and penis disease and that your hands will look like a warty penis if untreated. Just for shits and giggles I googles hand and penis disease. Do it, it makes your search history more fun and you get to see unforgettable images. Must. Go. Wash. Eyes.

    Nope. I have them also. Finally found out they are caused by anxiety. When the got to my palms as well as my fingers Dr put me on Zanax. That worked almost 100%

      Hi Sherry. 🙂

      I agree … xanax is like a magical balm for worry blisters.
