Aren't those called blisters?

I'm guessing the group of doctors that came up with this were really being pushed on publish-or-perish.

Called "PlayStation palmar hidradentitis" by the scientists, the skin disorder can cause painful lesions on the palms similar to patches found on the soles of children's feet after taking part in heavy physical activity, they said.
I'm glad they added 'PlayStation' in there. Because that makes it clear that there's no way you could get this from playing on an Xbox or Nintendo or Wii for hours on end. Or from doing other repeated motions with your hand for hours on end.
