I am experiencing itch and skin rash over finger joints.

I am experiencing  itch and skin rash over finger joints.

May be eczema: Eczema on the fingers and hands doesn't have to look like the dry, crackly surface skin texture of eczema elsewhere. Fingers can have itchy flesh-colored bumps, called dishydrotic eczema or dishydrosis. The treatment can be as in eczema, with hydrocortisone cream 3 times a day for a week... and if the rash worsens or isn't better, one should see a primary care doctor or dermatologist for care. ...Read more

I have been eating badly and lots of sugar for the past 2 weeks. Also picked up an extra 10kgs since stopping smoking 8 months ago and I am struggling now to loose it. The problem now is that both my shoulder and finger joints are stiff. Diabetes?

Not necessarily: To diagnose diabetes your doctor would need to test your blood glucose and/or A1c level. It is good that you quit smoking. Losing weight is not easy and it gets harder with increasing age. Joining a group like weight watchers may help.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Fractured radius - why are  my finger joints are very stiff each morning? Improves during the day with movement.how long will this last? Thanks

Swelling from break: The fracture causes inflammation, which impedes the normal flow of lymph from the hand to the arm and then into the central veins. Because of this slowdown, your fingers are a little swollen and feel stiff.

Elevating your arm, which gives the flow a boost from gravity, might help.

This is temporary, don't worry. ...Read more

Probably: 24 hours is not very long post op. As long as it is intermittent and there is no pus, increasing redness or swelling, I would give it another day or two. If symptoms persist or worsen over and past the 48-72 post op hour mark, call the hand surgeon. ...Read more
