Tiny clear bumps on palms
I’ve had these clear small bumps on my hands for as long as I can remember. They are about the diameter of a toothpick, not grouped together (seem to have random placement) about 6 bumps per hand. They don’t itch, and look perfectly circular. Are these normal? Is this a skin condition of some sort?

Hi there
This might be small warts, or another viral infection, called molluscum contagiosum. Although I doubt it is either one, because you say it has always been there. It might be small fat cells or other benign growths underneath your skin. If it has always been there, and it is not increasing in size or number, then I wouldn't be too worried. Good luck and stay safe.
