Just intrigued as to how many spreads have tiny lumps on their hands??
Another couple of spreads I know have the same - mole sized lumps, and I just wondered if it had something to do with the bags of finish???
Or it could be just us Northerners are Mutating !!

Do they look like this?
Should maybe get the vet to have a look.

In fairness they look like white spots on the back of the hands.
As stated earlier two desperate spreads I've worked with had the same thing!!
Didn't know if it was anything in the plaster that causes it.

Just off for a 4 week holiday in a padded room nah !! Lol

I currently have sciatica, not fun. Managed to go do patching today. Not looking forward to a kitchen ceiling and walls tomorrow.[emoji21]

Cheers Scrim !!
The missus is a nurse and has bad sciatica, so know what you going through!!
Only other thing I suffer a lot with is pain in shoulder blade now and again, part and parcel of the job I guess !!

Yeah I get those too!
More often when I'm using cement though.
Hand cream helps keeps it down, used to use Norwegian formula, but Lidl do the same super concentrate one for about 75p, so use that now. It helps me.

Dermovate is best for dermatitis . Fck me, it's getting like the doctors forum
Dermovate and betnovate work but not good for long term use as it thins the skin.
if looking for a prescription cream Diprosalic works best and is less aggressive.
Vaseline is best during the day, diprosalic at night with cotton gloves. Had my doubts when this was suggested by my GP but it works and took about a week.
