I guess you guys know that we get to the point that we recognize how our body reacts to certain things. Over the last few years I've had an on again/off again problem.
I have a tendencie to get rashes and/or small water blisters on my fingers.Particularly the thumb and pointer finger. The blisters pop and get sore...I hate it.
Initially when it started a few years ago I was working in a factory that had a lot of standing water, and I thought it was due to that. But the plant closed a year and a half ago and I still occationally have the problem.
I began paying closer attention to the outbreaks and what I'm doing when they occur. I noticed they happened whenever I took certain supplements. I was taking Lipo-6 at first and when I stopped my hands cleared up within days. Last fall I took generic caffine tabs and broke out again. This spring I took Leviathan for 6 weeks and....nothing (as far as the rash). I wanted more Levi, but I'm strapped for cash at the moment so I bought some No-Doze and Bronkaid. Right now 3 days later, I want to take sandpaper to my hands because thet itch so bad! The blisters appeared the day after I started ECA.
So, the only thing everthing has in common is Caffine. The question is why do I react that way? Is it overstimulating my nervous system? Am I just allergic? Why didn't Levi cause the same problem? I've even read the blisters are a result of my body trying to detoxify.
Anyone have any ideas? (of course stop taking caffine, I mean as far as why it causes a rash and blisters)

excema? or maybe a form of it?
I would see a dermatologist and find out whats really going on.
My only guess is that Leviathan is a lower dose of caffeine (about 75mg per pill), perhaps your other sources of stimulants have higher content? Just a guess... I really cant speculate much further.

I know that my No-Doze has 200 mg.
It does seem like eczema, but it just seems odd that I'm ok unless I take caffine.

I've been research my own problem because I'm bored. I may have found another culprit. I'm posting in case someone else has a similar issue and uses search to try for an answer.
You see, when I ran out of Levi I had to find a quick substitute for my wake up stimulant. I drank a few cups of coffee every morning for 3-4 days before I went and bought the ECA. Coffee isn't something I have a taste for, so I rarely drink it.
Well, it turns out that people with eczema may have flair ups when they drink coffee. It's not the caffine, but something in the coffee.
Maybe there's a chance it was the java and I'll clear up in a few days.
