What diagnosis: There may be a simple explanation of some of this, but there is now an injection for dupuytrens your hand surgeon can do. The medicine for injection is called xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum). Your physicians full evaluation may find other problems that can cause some of these, and you need a full evaluation.
