Josh Beckett said that he still has to be careful of blisters but that tests have determined that when he has outbreaks of eczema he's more susceptible to them.
Last year they were kept under control.
"It's something I still have to be careful with. I've done testing to see if I'm allergic to something and we've come to the conclusion since I've been with the Red Sox is I have eczema. During my outbreaks, that's usually when my finger gets sore. Last year we were able to keep that stuff under wraps," Beckett said.
Beckett said he used a product called CoQ10, which helps skin problems.
