Bumps on knuckles of fingers

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on knuckles of fingers


I have round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my right hand (I'm right handed), the largest on my index finger and tapering to the smallest on my small finger. The largest is about 1/4" in diameter and about 1/8" high. They are rough and feel like callouses, but I don't do any kind of work that would cause a callous there. I can file them smooth or put hand cream on them to soften them, but very soon the roughness is back. The largest is rough enough to snag on clothing, etc.
What are these red, tender <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> the size <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a pencil eraser <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the tops <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> on my fingers adjacent to the bed of my fingernails. I have assumed they were arthritic in nature. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/243275'>bumps on backs of hands, knuckles</a>.
couple weeks ago - i noticed blister-like sores <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> .. some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> have a blister on both the knuckles. i went to the dermatologist a week ago and she did not know what these were. she gave me a cream - salex - and said if it didn't clear up to see her partner. it hasn't cleared up and in fact, i am noticing more knuckles getting these. it does look like when one gets a blister from too tight of a shoe .. but no liquid has come out of any of them.
I get these same type <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the tops and sides <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my elbows and kneecaps. I have noticed a correlation with the sun and when the bumps come. They sound the same as the bumps that are being described here- red, uncomfortable to the touch, dry. I had none of these over the winter. Now that there has been sun these last few beautiful days, some popped up again.
I have one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my toe and one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> each hand. The one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my toe is the size <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a dime and one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my hand is about half that size. There is one on my other hand that seems to just be starting. I'm not sure if they are contageous or not. Wondering what bacteria might be causing these and what treatment is usually recommended. I'm waiting to get in to see a dermatologist but I have just moved to a new town and currently I am unable to get a family doctor. Would hydrocortozone cream work?
It has been about 4 days now and the rash has spread up my pointer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, to the next <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span>, down the side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my hands and to my elbows. I have had a slight history <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> eczema, however, it was on my neck area and i have not had a flare up in about 3 years. I'm not sure if i should inform my dermatologist or if i should use over-the-counter medications to take care of it. If you have any advice for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
They hurt really bad when I scrape them or put pressure on them, which happens a lot since they are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the creases <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> and then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my elbows. I started paying attention and noticed that they only come around my period. I don't get them every cycle, but I've never had them when my period didn't soon follow. My period is very irregular but when I start getting these painful bumps, I know it's coming soon.

Spots frequently appear in small clusters. Appears <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> outside <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> elbows, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> and tops <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, along the sides <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> especially near the fingernails. Similarly distributes itself across toes. I would like to point out specifically that there is NO signs of this on webbing between digits. It's all appearing on hard joints. There is likewise NO scaling, flaking, or texture changes to the skin beyond feeling warm and a bit swollen.
I have tiny blister-like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my pointer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, mostly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right hand, but some on my left as well. They are also on my pinky finger knuckles. They do not itch, nor do they hurt, but they look wierd, and therefore are bothersome. I pop them and it almost looks like water comes out. Nothing pus-like. My regular doctor didnt know what they were but wasnt concerned since they didnt hurt or itch. I have no history of eczema or any other skin condition.
I had a sexual encounter 5 weeks ago (first ever) recently I noticed small clusters <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> very small colorless <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> usualy near the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> and on the sides. Itch sometimes but not frequent. Are those related to STD? Contagious? How can this be tested? Thx.
I have had these same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> only 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> and 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my right hand that come and go and itch like crazy they also leave dry patches of skin that crack and hurt. I have had this for a year now. My dermatologist said atopic eczema. I know a lot of you are saying no sun however my Dr. said ubv photothreapy (chance of skin cancer) and it seems to work and I notice that when I go tanning (tanning bed...
I got rid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> by putting athlete's foot medicine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my FEET, NOT MY HANDS. Wash your feet twice a day at first, using CLOTRIMAZOLE CREAM between the toes, or probably any anifungal cream. If your painful bumps are the same as mine, they will start to disappear in a day or 2. I continue to use the cream EVERY DAY after showering, with no more bumps on my fingers at all. Rite Aid pharmacies have a pretty good price on their own brand of generic cream in the foot section.
I have had them for 3 or 4 years running, they disappear most of the tear but i often get a few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a warm day. When it get really hot, like it is now where I am, both the back of my hands get covered in these bumps which spread on the forefinger and around the thumb.
They just raise up as red lumps, then after a period <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> time they disappear (although new ones then pop up elsewhere <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>). I had seen a dermatologist years ago who said it could possibly be contact dermatitis (I Don'T believe it is) or possibly an auto-immune disease like lupus. I never followed up.
Although at that time it wasn't as bad. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> are only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a couple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>. My first and middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> both handes. They are worse on my right hand. And they are only adjacent to my middle and lower finger joints/knuckles. They don't appear anywhere else on my hands or body. When the raised bumps go down the skin is very hard and dry in that area and a little sore. They are pink/red in nature and kind of yellow when they dry out.
It started with one each on the knuckles of my middle and ring finger on my right hand and seemed to spread from there. The majority <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> them are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the sides <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span>. They are more visible when my hands are wet and slightly painful to the touch. They seem to start to go away when my hands get extremely dry but come back when i moisturize. I work as a cashier and am afraid i picked up something from touching money and coming in contact with different people all day.
I have red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the joints <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, sometimes they come and go but they are there more then not. They are extremely itchy but hurt when I itch them and make my joints stiff. I've had them for about 3 years last year the doctor prescibed some cortizone cream saying it may be a skin condition but it did nothing. They are both on the sides of my fingers and on top.
since then they have gotten progressively worse. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span>, top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> her hands...bottoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> feet very badly...ankles hurt, feet hurt. sometimes beyond the point of walking. numbness in her fingertips, and also a rash that comes and goes, not raised, doesnt itch...and is on the back of her thighs. it is very hard to say how many times that rash has appeared bc it has no symptoms... These symptoms do not seem consistant with lupus...
As I'm sure you realize, arthritis refers to swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the joints. A rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the joints does not imply or suggest arthritis. Although I'm not sure exactly what this rash is, I doubt it has any systemic significance. (I assume your son is otherwise healthy.) My advice is to set up an appointment with a skin doctor. If possible, take photos of the rash when it's in full bloom, in case it isn't there when you see the doctor.
Not only would these odd bumps would appear on my feet when walking in bare feet(ball, arch, heel), but they'd also appear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my elbows, and hands(<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span>, palms). Whenever I applied excessive pressure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> them, or I brushed/rubbed/scaped against something my skin would break out in multiple red/white painfully welt/bump/lumps and they stay for about 2 - 3 days and then they're gone.
None are located near fingernails and only three are located somewhat toward the sides <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> or palms. Some are near <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span>, others aren't. They appear to be random in location. I've looked at severall pictures of things online and these doesn't look like any of them. Those all look very irritated. Maybe it nothing to worry about, but I thought I'd ask.
I have large <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span>. They are tender to the touch and tender when put under pressure - like making a fist. They are on all 8 fingers (thumbs excluded). I have tried ice, heat, massage, reike, and anti-inflammatories. I've been to a dermatoligist. I had biopsies done on the pad type material - inconclusive. I've had cortisone injections and tried a topical steroid. No change. I am right handed but the issue is bi-lateral. I have a desk job.
The bumps are usually close together in small groups of about three or four.They are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the inside <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my thumb and pointer finger. They usually only stay for a day or two, then they go away. Any ideas? Thanks!
A few daya later i notice a small bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the edge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> penis with a dry skin atop it. It itched along qith little bumps along shaft which matched small bumps i had around Nd between my knuckles. Just little dry bumps. Ive tried steriod creams Nd benedryl. The bene helped a little but atill the skin itches like crazy. I need help.
I have redish flat disks that have formed on my elbows (slightly itchy, mild pain when bumped) and slightly red, mostly skin colored small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckles</span> and top side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> and hands. This condition usually only last 1-3 weeks for me and very rarely. I've had this happen maybe 3-4 times in my life. I thought that it may perhaps be Dermatitis Herpetiformis and mentioned that when i saw my dermatologist today.
Now a week ago after being in a salt water pool for a few hours I started itching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my palms and soles <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my feet. The next day the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span> and also on my palms but they itched severely. After two days I couldn't stand the itching so I bought over the counter anti itch hydrocortazone cream. At first it seemed to relieve it but hours later it burned. Each day the bumps spread and grow and are hard and tight. My knuckles are also tight.
skin colored almost invisible bumps on back of hands. flat wart like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> palms barely visible. wart like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> joints <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> hands. major joint pain in hands and swelling of knuckles. blotchy skin on hands red irritated and inflammed skin on backs of hands bumps along the rosecea line of face.
I apply hand creme several times a day and this has helped it from becoming so severe that the skin splits open. Thin, small,crusty, skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> have formed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the sides <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fingers</span>, like a calus. The side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> fingers closest to thumbs is mainly affected along with most of my finger knuckes. only on hands, not feet. Does anyone have something similar? treatment? Diagnosis? Please email me if so.
