    I have a small spot on my hand. I tried draining the clear fluid inside but it just filled up again...Anyone know how to treat/get rid of it? Or does it go away naturally?

    Sounds like pus, probably an infection, best to see a doctor.

    Spots need to be drained until blood runs. Well the ones on faces do anyway.

    eeer, no.
    your body will natrally get rid of spots (like it would before people started bursting them), and is never a good idea to make holes in your skin - just makes it more likely to get infected.
    its bad to do it, just unnecessary.

    Ah I love it. Squeezing a spot until all the puss is out and it's just blood. I don't really get that many spots though and I've not had one scar yet! Nor an infection or whatever.

    oh i do the same, just wanted to point out that your body in no way needs help popping spots.

    you are both wrong.
    OP, i have little 'spots' on my hand sometimes, they dont break the surface and i only find them if i'm looking for them - they go away eventually, but they are not spots.

    What are they then? I'm looking all over my hands and can't find anything.

    Well it's about a mm or two across and it is filled with a clear liquid. at least I think it is clear, definitely not red or yellow or green or anything like that. Might be pale yellow but I can't tell. Is it really necessary to see doc over this?

    I have no idea! Sometimes they're itchy, and they're very painful to squeeze, but the liquid is always clear and not infected or anything.

    Just looked it up, apparently they are a form of ecsema and its harmless, though aggrivated by strong chemicals, which makes sense!

    I get EXACTLY those, they go naturally. Sometimes I drain them and sometimes I don't but they always go. I find I get them more often on the back of my hand when I have used vaseline and have rubbed the excess in to the back of my hand. It is just a blocked pore and is nothing to worry about. If you do pop them though, just make sure you keep it clean because you don't want to get an infection that you wouldn't have if you had have cared for it lol.
