Index finger callus

Common Questions and Answers about Index finger callus

finger

But I have had this 1 cm in diameter bulge on my left hand index finger. I am not even left handed and it's not like I use my hands for hard labor, so I don't know if its a callus or not. It randomly appeared..The skin on the 'callus' is slightly darker. Problem is, its quite noticeable and I've had it for years.. I really don't understand how you can get rid of it.. So I tried cutting it off with a NAIL CLIPPER.. and i ended up have a small circle in the bulge that is completely red.
A pompholyx is an allergic reaction to fungus. Antifungal cremes do not help here.ok?
I have a sore on top of my index finger that looks somewhat like a callus. It will start to get painful and I can squeeze out a crystal clear gel like puss. I do not think it is a wart. There is a small black dot in the center of the sore. It tends to get smaller then bigger. Does anyone have any idea what it may be and how to get rid of it?
I have two small, pimple-like red bumps on the left side of my index finger. These just came up today. They aren't itchy or irritated or making pus. My hands are actually really dry, could this be the cause? They don't hurt, only a little when pressure is applied. It may be the way I hold my pencil. If I keep my hands lotioned and stuff, will they go away? I have a callus on my middle finger actually, and these look nothing like that. And I doubt they'd pop up THAT quickly. Any ideas? Thanks!
I burned the side of my right index finger many months ago between the distal and the middle phalanx. The tissue initially hardened slightly as it healed. I scratched and picked at it, sometimes inadvertently and sometimes from day-to-day activities, and eventually the spot became a hard patch of callused tissue that is now approx. 1/3" across. The tissue itself is a hard/dead lump which I try to manage with a pumice stone and a sharp knife.
hello. I have bumps on three of my fingers (both thumbs and my right index finger). I am not really sure what they are. I have had them for about 16 years, since I was 12 or so. They do not hurt but are just annoyances because I consider them unsightly. i have posted pictures of them here: http://tinypic.com/r/2a0etfl/3 http://tinypic.com/r/ifzpmp/3 I am wondering if these are removable, and if so, generally how much one could expect to pay for such a procedure. Thank you!
What you have on your finger is called a callus. This is a thick, hardened layer of skin that has developed as a means of protecting itself from repeated use. I have had one on my knuckle of my index finger for years. I have cut the hard skin off with a pair of scissors, but it just comes back. I have just recently found information of how to get rid of them, I haven't tried it yet, but will definitely have a go.
It began on my left thumb, then right pinky. Then right middle finger, right index finger, left middle finger, left index finger, and finally left pinky. The only 2 fingers unaffected are my ring fingers. I have seen a multitude of dermatologists and have tried steroid creams. Nothing seems to help. I have not met anyone else that has this condition and many doctors look at my fingers like they have never seen anything like it before.
Once I started playing there I seemed to notice a new callus form on the inside of my left index finger. My glove is in my left hand, so this made sense to me since I was catching about 100 hard thrown balls a day and hitting my index finger. Well, that was about 1 1/2 years ago. I didnt play first base for about 6 months after that and I thought it would go away, yet the "callus" seemed to stay put. Recently, a friend saw it and thought it might be a wart...is this true?
To make matters worse whenever I flex the previously injured finger in all the way the index finger begins to hurt. It also hurts more than usual if I bump something or knock on a door. Is there any type of joint injury that could explain this bump that is almost the size of a pea forming on the joint after the injury heals? Can I expect this bump to go away after a reasonable period of time? If not would a hand surgeon be able to remove the bump somehow?
i can say im getting very used to not doing anything with that index finger utilizing my middle finger instead(that includes the typing im doing now!!
Hi, I got a large blood blister on my index finger as a result of a pinch injury at work. Did not pop it. after several months the outer skin peeled off . after more than a year there is a hard patch of skin that grows where the blister used to be. i cut it off with fingernail clippers but it grows back. what is it and how do I get rid of it ?
Hi, About 3 weeks ago, a Ugandan friend of mine (aged 25) broke the bone leading from the knuckle of his right index finger to the wrist as a result of a punch he threw. A local doctor tried to reset the bone and put a cast on extending from just above the knuckles to just above the wrist. A few days ago my friend was probing the area under the cast and could feel a pronounced bump at the site of the fracture. He went back to the doctor for an xray (attached).
I have round bumps on knuckles of all the fingers of 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.
I have a small, whiteish, bump on my right index finger. It is very sensetive to touch. I first though I had burned my finger but couldn't rember any time I had done so. It has lasted about 10 days getting more sensitive each day though tapering off the last few days and remaining the same. It could be a plantar wart someone said but it is white and does not have much of a raised portion 1/32 of an inch in diameter. What to do?
I have a smooth lump in the inside of my hand right along the knuckle of the index finger. It is very painful. I assumed it was a wart and treated it with several different methods.Nothing has worked. I have even tried getting it frozen off? It is about 2cm wide. Does anyone have any idea on what to do? Or what it might be?
I am 31 yrs old female and have had the same problem as long as I can remember myself. I have heavy callous between my thumb and index finger. Like you, I would peel them off and ijure my palms in the process. I have always been embarassed of my hands. So embarassed, i have never even brought them to a doctor. But have you ever tried consulting a Dermatologist? Thanks for sharing.
A couple months before I started to get these red dots I had formed what seems to be a callus between my index finger and thumb on both hands in the exact same spot. No, I do not use tools or anything else that would cause these to form. I shave them with a razor and they return after about a week. I mention this because I believe this is all related. On a side note, I have had many other symptoms that started at about the same time as the red dot issues.

Now I have two more small bumps on my index finger and one on my thumb. All of the bumps are white/fleshy colored and they don't hurt or itch at all... I am not sure if they are warts anymore, as I never had warts before in my life... and they don't seem to look like the warts I see in pictures. I did some research and found out they could be "stress bumps" If this is true how would I be able to tell for sure and is there a way to treat it?
Over the past couple months or so, I have developed a whitish/yellowish spot off to one side from the tip of my index finger, on the fleshy part about 3/16" away from the nail. It is soft, not hard like a wart and doesn't have any other wartlike characteristics that I can see or feel.
All these things have not bothered me in the past, but now I am concerned they could be symptoms of something serious. Another thing is that I have a callous on my index finger caused by friction while sword fighting and this bit of my finger comes into contact with the inflamed part of the penis when I am masturbating - perhaps this is the cause. I am very anxious about this and will have to wait another nine days before I see my GP, who specialises in dermatology.
She basically pricked my index finger (which then formed a tiny light red spot of blood), then continued to apply gently pressure to produce more blood from my finger, which she collected the sample from. My question is, would this affrect the test results? It came out negative, however this is now constantly on my mind and I'm afraid of going back for another test. I guess what I need to know, is...
this seems similar to a problem I have that I cant seem to diagnose/ I too have a small hole in the crease of my index finger, at the base crease above my palm. Years ago I got ahold of whatever was in there and pulled it out- I looked like a single root or something. Now after years as a bike mechanic its irritating me again and now its swollen making the base of my index finger much larger than it should be. So beneath the hole in my hand is what feels like a BB or something.

If he's been hitting a stem it won't be long before it looks like his thumbs are burned up on the side toward the index finger. It's not actually a burn, it's caused by the almost-constant flicking of lighters, but it looks like a burn. If he's not too far into it yet it may just look like an oddly-placed callus Burns on the lips too . . . it's often difficult to remember which end of the stem is cool.
I have the same exact bumps. On my left sides of my index and middle finger and only on my right hand. It's painful to hold a pen and write. They have come and gone over the years. I would like to find a treatment but don't have the time to go on a wild goose chase with doctors. If any of you have found a way to treat this, please respond!
I have developed a number of itchy red bumps on various places on my body. Every once in awhile I develop hard bumpy red skin on my right index finger that is sore to the touch, but usually just goes away after awhile. It almost looks like a callus. It's annoying an hurts when I touch or bend my finger but eventually the bumps go away and everything is fine. Some of the new bumps kinda feel the same though, it's similar pain when touched. Recently I noticed similar bumps on my heel.
For me here, it's been 7 months of peeling on the finger tips. All tips from left hand and only the index and thum from the right hand are affected. It started with ski gloves sweating, at first i thought it was fungus but no, it really looks like what you describe, Exfoliative keratolysis I will keep following this post...
