Trigger Finger: Most likey reason is that you have a trigger finger (or two). An experienced hand surgeon can help. Sometimes antiinflammatories can help (oral or injectable), and if not, a relatively simple surgical procedure can correct it. The first step however, is to see a hand surgeon and get the correct diagnosis. ...Read more

What is the best way to get rid of scratches on fingers?

What is the best way to get rid of scratches on fingers?

Healing of scratches: I assume you mean scratches that have caused some degree of bleeding. You need to let these heal just like any other cut on the body. I like patients to use traumeel cream (http://traumeel.Us/) to help speed up this process. It is inexpensive and can be used often without worrying about using too much. This simple cream should be in every medicine cabinet (my opinion). ...Read more

The last time the phlebotomist did a finger stick it was very painful is there a a way to avoid the pain?

Not really!: The skin of the fingers have a lot of nerve endings and as a result are very sensitive. If the finger sticks are done rarely, then you may ask your doctor for a topical anesthetic to numb the finger. However, this is not practical for frequent finger stickers like diabetics, as the anesthetic drug has side effects. Warming fingers up prior to the stick helps the blood flow and this may help. ...Read more
