Finger joint bumps

Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint bumps


Avatar f tn I have these little things on my fingers that look like blisters or bumps or sores. It started with one and I tried to pop it but nothing came out. I have kept a bandaid with neosporn on it for the past few days (it's been there for about 2 days now) cleaned it with soap and water and alcohol each time I put a new bandaid on and today I noticed there are about 4. It's red sore, painful, and sometimes itchy. I'm not sure what it is and concerned because it is spreading.
Avatar m tn My question is regarding the first joint of my right hand index finger. I believe it is called the proximal interphalangeal joint. The joint has been very sensitive to the touch for a few weeks with no sign of abating. The joint also hurts a little if I bend it fully, but not nearly as much as if I just touch it with a little pressure. I do not see any outward signs of injury. It is not red or swollen. I have no similar pains in any other fingers or joints.
Avatar f tn Hello Doctor, So a few weeks ago, I noticed a tiny red bump (the size of a sesame seed) on my pointer finger on the side that faces my thumb (the outside) right on the joint. Ever since, I would get a few clustered around the joints on that side on both fingers which stay for only about a week before they go away and new ones come up. Sometimes they would itch a little or hurt when I apply pressure to them, and sometimes they don't even feel like they're there.
Avatar m tn Not long after she developed three largeish (1mm or so) nodules just under the skin along with joint pain. The bumps started showing over a week and as they got larger the joint pain spread up the finger and across the hand. As it got worse we noticed the pad on her hand next to the index finger was swelling with a lot of pain to the touch. We talked to another ortho doc and he said it was carpel tunnel, or trigger finger and wants to inject steroids.
Avatar m tn They became more pronounced when i would bend the joint. I had somewhat similar bumps on my hand about a year ago and went to a dermatologist because I thought they might be warts. The dermatologist said they were not warts and that there was nothing he could do. He said said they probably had something to do with getting a teddy bear cholla plant (cactus-type) stuck in my hand when I was in Arizona. The bumps went away after a few months but then I noticed these two bumps.
Avatar n tn It was absolutely amazing!! At the very end, he knew I was done when big bumps appeared in my toe and finger joints and after a week or so disappeared - the toxins tend to hide there and they are the last to get purified out of the system. So, perhaps that would help your edema and joint pain as well as all the above. Does exercise help? Try a masseuse, then Yoga and then physical therapy. Can Diet (natural supplements) help? See above - I find that Dr.
Avatar m tn And now i have these little white miniscule bumps on the tip of my middle right finger. they are barely noticeable unless you look closely, and there have no other discrepancies besides being white.NO fluid, pain, itchiness. Just a sensation once in a while, probably from my anxiety. There shaped like "l" but around 3/4th the size of that l. It doesn't help that i get stressed when i see warts on this kid i know in my class everyday, because i'm also a huge germaphobe.
Avatar f tn The time that it was the worst, the outside of my index finger on my left hand was covered in bumps and it was very itchy, and my middle finger on that hand was swollen and sore at the joint. I noticed it after a morning of intense deep cleaning my house, so I wonder if it is an allergic reaction to the cleaners I use. I have seasonal allergies. I've had a few episodes since then, and it's now on my right index finger near the first joint, but it's never as bad as that day.
Avatar f tn I have itchy, red, raised blister looking bumps on my left elbow, right index finger joint and both of my large toe joints near the hair follicles there as well. These show as a red area with several raised bumps which are itchy but when scratched are painful. This has happened in the past and has come and gone. This is the worst it has been. Is this a sign of other things? What is this and what will make this heal faster?
Avatar n tn Hello, I recently woke from a bad night's rest just to find that I have a sore on my left pointer finger. Its mid-point on my finger preventing me from bending it all the way. When I attempt to bend my finger it hurts like crazy, this feels almost like a hair bump on the inside of my hand. Very uncomfortable. This bump doesn't have a head to it like other bumps I've experienced in the past.
Avatar m tn A mucous or myxoid cyst arises from degeneration in the connective tissue on the top of the last segment of the finger. It may connect with the joint at the end of the finger. A ganglion cyst is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation for this. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn From time to time I used to get these small clear bumps in between my fingers. This was about the time that I first started having skin rashes (the doctors diagnosed as psoriasis). I believe the bumps to be dyshidrotic eczema, but I can't be for certain. Anyways, about 2-3 months ago one appeared on the middle knuckle of my pointer finger.
Avatar f tn If this is present only in one arm and there are no associated joint pains, joint swelling and other symptoms, then this may be a dermatitis. I suggest that that you have this assessed by a dermatologist. She may need skin scrapings from the area to have it microscopically evaluated. If the rash is itchy then scabies also have to be considered. Any exposure to anyone with scabies?
Avatar n tn I have a rash, it consists of 3 or 4 red bumps on the middle joint of my middle finger and now I also have two bumps on my index fingers on both hands and some bumps on my elbow. They are a little itchy and kind of painful, and look sort of like blisters. Does this sound like what you've experienced? I'm hoping you can help shed some light on my situation. I appreciate your help!
Avatar m tn Now, I think the jam is healed but I have a big bump on the joint. Additionally, the finger won't straighten 100% and the lowest part of the finger bends downwards when I try to straighten. This weird bend combined with the bump gives my finger an odd shape. However, there is no pain and I have full flexion. There is only a very little pain when I put a lot of pressure on the bump but I honestly can't tell if that's even abnormal. It takes a lot of force and it's really not much pain at all.
915277 tn?1252576713 Sorry that it's taken me a while to get back to this forum and my question about my finger bumps! I have an appt with an endo on 6/24 and am looking into a rheumy as rheumy's deal with thyroid and other glandular problems or is that strictly endo?? My hands hurt so bad that just vacuuming is torture (holding onto the handle) and they are so swollen and tight feeling that at times it's hard to get a drop of blood out of them to test my blood sugar...
Avatar n tn I have several small long bumps on my fingers, mostly by the middle joint. They almost look like long healed scars, but i havent had any injuries to my hands. I'm very worried they are a parasite because one is noticeably larger recently and in it getting bigger, I then looked closer at my other finger joints and found five other smaller ones. The smaller ones are all straight lines, where the one that's bigger is wavy, reminds me of a worm - which is why I thought of a parasite.
Avatar f tn Look for Deformity or Inability to Move In a finger fracture, you have broken a segment of your finger and it is usually not possible to move it. You may also notice bone deformity such as unusual bumps on the affected finger. Any signs of misalignment are usually indicative of a fracture. Sometimes, you cannot move your finger due to severe swelling and bruising. Could It Be Sprained or Jammed?
Avatar n tn I have recently (beginning of this year) begun to occasionally develop very painful blisters on my toes and feet, especially around the toenails, joints, and occasionally the arch of the foot. Very occasionally I will have a similar painful bump on the base or joint of a finger. They start as small, hard bumps that spread, and seem to be fairly deep in the skin. They have a white coloration inside with red irritated skin around them.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar f tn In September I woke up early one morning from my sleep with my middle finger on the side of the joint closest to my hail and it was hurting. It was swollen and throbbing and at that time it just looked like a white spot (like when you push down on your skin). The next morning I woke up the swelling and throbbing was gone. It stayed that color for around 6 hours and then started turning pink and then red by afternoon.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing what sounds like the exact same symptoms, except have not had bumps on the knees. My symptoms have been limited to the finger joints, elbows, and occasionally joints on my toes. Have periodically experienced breakouts 2-3 times a year since I was about 16 (am 30 now). During my last outbreak, which occurred about one month ago, I went to the doctor and had a biopsy. Tests were inconclusive.
Avatar m tn I have a small bump that developed under my index finger ( on the palm side ), it is positioned just above my highest joint, when it first developed it was very hard to see because it was flesh colored. It has grown more white colored, and gradually more noticable. when i pull my finger back, it is very noticable, as it appears round and white. It is also very flat. It is not really irritating either, it is not itchy. I was thinking it could be a wart, but I am not sure.
Avatar n tn At first it is only some minor feelings like needles in my knees/toes, and later it developed into muscle/joint pain all over my body (it is not unbearable but it is clear) after three weeks of anxiety. Sometimes it is like that there is an aching line from my finger to elbow. Sometimes it feels like someone is using a drill or something on the bones of my finger/shin/lower arm. There is no simultaneous pain in two different places though. Sometimes my upper arms have pulsing pain.
Avatar f tn I have been reading several posts about bone and joint pain post treatment-here is my story-I have herniated and bulging discs in my neck, along with mild stenosis and arthritis, I also suffer with lumbar issues, I have been in chronic pain for nearly 14 years with it.. I am unable to turn my head fully to the left, or up and have a constant headache. My arms, hands, knees, left foot and toes and hips would go numb.
Avatar m tn I'm assuming this may be a minor problem. About five days ago, my right index finger felt very slightly odd near the bottom of the tip joint/middle bone area (the "palm side" of my finger). I can't describe it any more than that; I just knew something wasn't right. Then I noticed that it was slightly swollen. I would never have noticed this if it didn't feel slightly weird. (The weird feeling is also rarely noticed, or is gone entirely.
Avatar n tn They don't come on the palmar surface of my fingers, just the sides and tops... and never on the back of the hand, only just to the joint where the finger meets the hand (MCP joint). They measure between ~2mm and ~8mm in size (usually 3-4mm), are red and slightly raised, and aren't filled with fluid. Clumping around the joints is more likely than on the shaft of the phalanges. They're painful (well... uncomfortable) to touch or rub, and usually disappear within a couple of weeks.
