Recommend that a family doctor or dermatologist examine you and determine what the lesions are. ...Read more

I am sensing a pricking pain then and there under the skin portion of the thumb after it got caught for a sec in a stand. What has to be done..
Watch and wait: patiently. It sounds like the skin and small muscle of your thumb suffered a contusion from a pinch injury. The pricking sensation suggests some minor nerve damage that will very likely improve and go away on it's own. You may be able to sense this for several weeks ... maybe even up to 6 months. As long as it is slowly improving I wouldn't worry. If worsening, see your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Or, worst case, you have to. You need to get this looked at as soon as you can before the reaction subsides ...Read more
