Avatar n tn He is 16 months old. Saturday morning his smallest finger was hot and swollen and painful to him when we woke him up. The swelling was confined to just the last joint of his finger, to the tip. My husband examined it to see if there seemed to be a broken bone, but he thought not. As the morning went on, he appeared to be in a good deal of pain and just wanted to be held. By the afternoon, the swelling had increased to over halfway down his finger.
Avatar m tn I have purple discoloration on my earlobe, it looks like a splotchy bruise. It do not hurt or itch, what could it be? I have a smaller spot on the top of my earlobe. The skin has the same texture as the rest of my ear, there is no bump, and it is not swollen in any way.
Avatar n tn A co-worker suggested I flex my finger to return circulation, so I did. After a while, the blue became a deep purple/light gray color. It also looks a little swollen and it's painful to touch. Any ideas as to what happened? It's never happened before.

Avatar f tn Got into the dr, it was an infection, first round of anitbiotics did not help, so they determined it was a resistant strain of staph infection. 2nd round helped, finger is just a little swollen now and only slightly purple.
Avatar f tn So I punched something really hard during karate and my little finger and ring finger area turned very purple and blue, and the bruising spread down my hand. The two knuckles also swelled up a lot and it hurt a lot at first but after two days it was just a constant irritating throb. It's two weeks later and the swelling and bruising is completely gone, but as the swelling went down I noticed a small lump of something between my little and ring finger knuckle.
Avatar n tn If your finger is hot or swollen or you have a fever, you should see a doctor at once. If the condition is steady, wait a couple of weeks, as you may be describing a bruise. Best. Dr.

Avatar n tn i was playing with my friends in the cafeteria at my school and one friend kicked me in my hand and now the bottom of my pinky where the knuckle bone thing is swollen. i can bend it but the finger can get straight unless i move it and it hurts when i move it up and down. but it gets tense and tight when i make a fist.ok you know how you have lines in fingers, well after the third line my finger gets reallly really thick like thicker than my other pink.
Avatar n tn woke up this morning my finger was swollen redish purple, not caused by injury. tender when touched. but still can move it ok.
Avatar n tn I recently found a small(1mm), dark purple spot on my lower right gum that is not painful or swollen. It almost looks like it is hollow underneath the gum in this spot especially when I run my finger across to displace the blood flow. I used chewing tobacco on and off for about 4 years and quit recently. This area concerns me b/c this spot is near an area where I used to place the snuff against the lip. I am going to see a dentist this week but wanted to get an opinion here as well.
Avatar f tn I lacerated the tendon between my fingernail and knuckle on my left index finger about 4 years ago.(on the top of the finger). I had surgery to repair the tendon and then had to have the internal sutures removed about 6 months later because they used a thicker suture and they kept poking through the skin. Since then my finger has a clicking sound when I bend it but as of lately it is very painful all the time and the pain shoots up my arm at times.
Avatar m tn I now also have some swelling on the top to the rear of my skull and if I push a finger on it, it leaves an indent and temporarily makes my headache increase. I'm not sure if I'm being a hypochondriac, which I'm not typically, but I can't help but wonder if there's something more serious going on here. I have seen the Dr., as I also have experienced some major fatigue over the last several months. Does anyone else get exertion headaches?
Avatar f tn Make a long story short, it's been almost four months since my injury, I had surgery and my finger is still swollen, bent and stiff. I may have to get surgery again. How did it go for you in the end??
Avatar n tn but certain parts became itchy and red- under toes, sides of feet, a little on top- no ankle swelling or redness. These itchy red areas become hard and painful to walk, the outbreaks last about 24-48 hours. The first time this to both feet and I passed it off to wearing new and cheap high heals for over 13 hours the day before (I teach). That day I also had some trouble with a family member who was staying with me- so I felt stress may have been a contributor?
Avatar n tn do the pins limit mobility or should i still have some movement since its been almost 2 weeks since they were placed in?? finger still very swollen! shoild i be trying to move this finger on my own?? if the mobility does not come back,,will getting that second tendon stretchin surgery that everyone seems to talk about work???
Avatar n tn I cut my finger (on the knuckle) some weeks back, My entire finger became swollen, with a red bump where the cut is, and both sides of the knuckle also swollen, with there being a small red rash at the base of the finger. It hurts whenever there is pressure on the finger or when I bend it. I went to the doctor's last week and he said it was an infection of the cut and prescribed a week-long course of flucloxacillin which I have been following and is due to end tomorrow.
Avatar n tn The doctors told her she should see a rheumatologist for the hand - while the numbness is common with MS, the dry-wrinkly/peeling skin on finger tips, swollen fingers -- just on one hand -- should be looked into separately. She seems to be doing/responding well to the copaxin therapy. 2-3 months now. No major side effects. Look forward to staying in touch with you. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend and i had sex last night and immediately after my vaginal lips became extremely swollen on the left side..i woke up this morning and they are still very swollen..My question is, is this normal?? And when do i expect the swelling to go away..and this was my first time having sex so can that play a factor in this or could it be that i might be allergic to the latex???
Avatar n tn Instead, the regions of skin that are most heavily anchored from below will remain lower than the more softened and swollen regions. The result – those temporary wrinkles on your fingers and toes. Other parts of your skin don’t have the same densely-reinforced design – so, no matter how much you soak, the rest of your skin tends to stay smooth. ref:http://www.earthsky.
Avatar f tn So I looked at it, and it appears to be slightly swollen, and there is a purple thing with a white tip kind of sticking out of my clitoris a little. Im really freaked out and kind of scared. When I went to clean it, theres still some pink stuff coming off from that area, and Im assuming its blood. Its not heavy bleeding, its a little color. And its also very 'wet' since its happened. What should I do?! Id prefer not going to the doctor until completely necessary.
Avatar n tn Came down with a big sore bump inside my left nostril. Entire left side of nose became red and swollen. Went to Prime Care and test showed "light staph infection". Have been taking double-strength Bactrim along with Valtrex in case it could be the start of shingles. It has been 4 days on meds with no improvement, but no rash either. Extremely painful. Wake up every 2 hours and need Vicodin. Seems to radiate into cheek. Scalp itches now.
Avatar n tn Sounds like an ingrown hair or maybe a swollen gland. Apply hot compresses and don't be surprised if it drains. If you are worried, you can see a Dermatologist. Not an uncommon problem, so don't be embarrassed or worry yourself too much. Good luck.
