Finger joint itching

Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint itching


Avatar f tn For at least a year now, I have these instances where a spot on my left index finger (at the joint near the tip of my finger) starts to itch. It itches for up to a couple of weeks, and then it stops for a few weeks, only to start again. It's only this spot, and always this spot. There's no rash (only redness because I scratch it) and no blisters, but while this is going on the skin on this spot feels very dry, no matter how much lotion I use. Any advice? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Help! I had pain and itching in the same time in my fingers and toes for 3 months. Skin become hard, cracking and swellen nearby.. Doctor gave antifugus drug, found no use, then Doctor changed to Hydrocotizon, Fluocinonide, trifluocinonide. it reduced pain and itchinging, But 3 months passed. The infacted area has been increased a lot. Before this symptom, I had joint pain, but since this skin disease come out, joint pain stopped.
Avatar m tn I have had, off and on, this terrible itching! It's back, and it's driving me up the wall! It's nothing dermatological and topical treatments don't do a thing. My Fibro dr says she's never seen any patients with this symptom before. Anyone else have this?
Avatar n tn I have tried alcohol as well, only relieves itching a little bit. I have this cream the doctor gave me for itching and sometimes it works, now I think it works only for the itching. I also get these little tiny bumps on the tops of my hands, itch and go away pretty quickly. The main problem with my situation is I also get them on my legs, itchy bumps in patches. I have been to a few doctors and no one can figure it out.
Avatar n tn Of course, I've had the usual side effects (dryness, depression, lethargy.) My main problem now is severe joint pain. I lift weights 5x per week. I don't want to stop working out, but my right elbow and both shoulders are killing me! Has anyone had experience with this and can you recommend medicine or treatment for the joint pain? I employ high intensity training (low reps, hight weight) but can change my lifting to lighter weight, with higher weights. But I can not stop lifting.

Avatar n tn Yesterday afternoon while in the dentist office with my son my hand started itching. First in one spot on one finger and then on to two more fingers and then the whole side of my hand. It only got worse as the night went on. I woke up scratching my hand all night and in the morning my hand was burning and swollen. I have never experienced this in my life. Its still itching pretty bad now and only gets worse with more scratching.
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 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 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 f tn Don't let anyone try to convince you that the flu-like symptoms, muscle aches, joint pain, muscle numbness and tingling, severe itching etc... is not related to your herpes. I know mine is. I say BullS#!T to anyone that says it is not. Come walk in my shoes when I am having an episode that can last anywhere from 2 weeks to over a month. Not fun folks. And don't even hope for a cure. These pharmaceutical companies are making billions. Yes billions treating herpes.
Avatar f tn It started at the middle of my cuticle on the middle finger and as slowly crept it's way to the right side tip across to the left side and down to the first joint on the left side finger. This time they started off very itchy and tiny little blisters. They merged together to form .5cm large, painful, itchy blisters. At first, the blisters remained in their clusters, but this time there's a cluster on each part of the left side of the middle finger.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! If you have mold in your house, then the joint pain and allergy could be due to mold. This has to be ruled out by an allergy test. Please consult an allergy specialist. Well, joint pains with rash can also be seen in SLE, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, polymayalgia rheumatica and chronic fatigue syndrome. Gout, though typically affects the great toe, can cause thumb pain and swelling along with a rash. Hashimotos Thyroiditis is another possibility.
Avatar f tn 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. Most times it doesn't itch, and it's only a tiny bit tender. Mine don't dry up and get hard, they seem to just disappear.
Avatar n tn This drainage can also back up into the Eustachian tube behind the ear causing pressure to build up in the TMJ that may appear as a very slight swelling of the joint. Some doctors will think you have an allergy and will treat the "allergy" instead of the eye problem. Since your problem is re-occuring and the allergy meds aren't working very well, it might be a good idea to see the optometrist and get your eyes checked out.
Avatar m tn I have the same problem on the pad of my right thumb and the side of the middle joint of my right index finger. it started as only the thumb but then it appeared to spread to the index finger and now it's worse there. It does not itch though; just very dry, hard, and flaky, and eventually cracks. no matter what lotions I use it does not go away.
Avatar m tn water which was in Copper container whole night.
Avatar n tn Pain sometimes burning pain in my thighs, genitals. Itching as well and that clammy feeling. For me though this all began exactly a week after having sex. I have been to my family doctor and 2 urologists. Have been tested and retested for STD's. None present. Was curious as to whether you had seen any folliculitis(infected hairs) anywhere below the waist. These can somtimes be painful. I do suffer from this. Every winter it seems to creep up. Just a thought.
Avatar f tn I'm 24 years old this month, female, I live on the west coast where it's always mild and cool for the most part, and NOTHING I do will stop my legs from itching. I lived in the midwest for awhile and noticed my legs itched a lot more there with the humidity, but it didn't stop when I moved back home. It's so bad it wakes me up a lot during the night.
798555 tn?1292791151 Many do not realize that what they think is joint pain may not be caused from within the joint, unless there is physical joint damage or Rheumatoid. Referred pain simply means pain felt in a different area from its true origin. Knee, ankle and shoulder pain is usually from tight muscles (nearby or far) pulling on a joint, so that's where you feel it. Loosening the muscle (if it wont stretch) via acupressure or trigger point release can relieve joint and muscle pain.
Avatar f tn Over the following weeks, I have noticed that my fingertips have become increasingly painful, especially when met with pressure(ie when I use my hands or push on my fingernails/pad tips). There is some aching in the joints, and some slight itching. They feel like they are radiating a slight heat. The pain is external and internal, just in the fingertips of my left hand. Does anyone know what this could possibly be/how I could treat it? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I developed the numb and wrinkled finger tips after being sick with a fever after reacting to a pneumonia injection. I also have joint paint in my finger. I went to a hand specialist and was tested for carpal tunnel. Tests came back posititive showing nerve restriction in all finger tips. Doctor said it was carpal tunnel. Surgery is scheduled in four weeks. For the last couple of weeks I have also had joint pain in my toes.
Avatar n tn It helps the superficial blisters, but I tend to get many deep blisters on the joint/bend of my finger. They're beyond painful and almost feel like they're down to the bone. I wish there was a cause and a cure for this, because it's really starting to effect my life. Once one starts to go away, I get three more... You don't realize how much you use your hands until you can't!
Avatar n tn )) start to have two smallish lumps on it (also on the joint closer to the palm). Its gone down a bit since then, but now the pinky is itching me very much. I'm a bit worried about what it may be. Some things to consider are that my hands are always cold, I live in a cold area (and even with gloves my hands feel cold), and me posture isn't always that good when I'm using the computer (which I use quite often).
Avatar f tn Interferron and riboviron treatment for 2 years in 1999-2001 and now have no cartilage in my shoulders and have chronic joint pain. I need bilateral shoulder and hip replacements and have acute lower spine pain which causes bilateral sciatica. It seems strange all my joints are breaking down at once. At 55 years old, my Dr's comment I am young to need joint replacements. My Doctors don't seem to know what has caused this condition and one said it was probably congenital???
Avatar n tn Hi I was currently had the same problem. Out of no where my body started itching. The doctor diagnosised it as demertitis. I had the same symptoms as your son, no visible signs of anythings. My doctor suggest benadryl, and told me to take two hydroxine at night. She doesn't have an idea what it is. She told me if its still bothering me in three days, to come back to see her.
Avatar f tn Wel I caught it and a little cut was formed on the tip joint of my right middle finger. The next day I had a allergic reaction to shell fish and my right hand swelled. Now 5 days latter I am have some major joint pains in my middle finger and its still a little swollen and righted skinned and difficult to bend. What can I do to get the swelling to go away and the joint pain to stop.
Avatar f tn Then, a day or two later, I developed three + red painful bumps, one right below my nail on my right pinky finger, one on the upper joint of my left middle finger, and one of the upper joint of my left ring finger. The pain isn't that bad -- the bumps are just sensitive and hurt a bit when touched. There is no itching at all, or burning, etc. Just a sensitivity/slight pain. I had this happen a few months ago, and it started like this and then more painful bumps appeared.
Avatar f tn On thursday I cut my index finger at the middle joint, it was cut so deep it took the skin down to the meat, the skin pulled back almost to the hand knuckle. I had to get 9 stitches and I had to work on friday but I didn't take anything but motrin or tylenol, by saturday it was trobbing so bad I ask mom for a couple hydros. Had half on sat. and went ot bed early had 1and half on sunday and a half this afternoon. It is getting better but now it is also itching along with the hurting.
