Hello all.

I just finished a week of relatively hard climbing.

I've developed blisters right under the skin on my left and right index fingers, and pinky fingers.

anyone here have similar experiences?

any advice for treatment?

I have had similar to what you're describing. I've taken all sorts of advice from doctors etc but to no success. Take a look at the link below it should give you an idea? That said the photos are pretty severe and way worse than the small 'bubbles' I sometimes get. My advice is - dont pop em (even though its hours of fun), keep em clean, and wash off the chalk at the first available opportunity. Doing this seems to limit the severity.
Good luck, and if you do hear of a cure let me know.
