I have arthritis in my hands I notice a bump On my right hand under my skin at the knuckle joint under my middle finger is it osteophytes?

I have arthritis in my hands I notice a bump On my right hand under my skin at the knuckle joint under my middle finger is it osteophytes?

Doubt osteophyte: Typically osteophytes come from osteo "wear and tear" arthritis or arise years after trauma, like from a broken bone poorly healed. As a general rule folks under thiry should not have osteoarthritis. Finger pain and a lump at a 3rd knuckle could be another form of arthritis. Blood tests and x rays seem like a place to start. Other causes of hand lumps also exist. See your provider. ...Read more

Skin coloured bumps (rarely itchy) over area near elbow,knee and wrist. Disappears and reappear after 1-2 hours. Worsen after having food?

Uncertain: How long after eating would you note this reaction since food allergic reaction usually occurs within 2 hours after eating and usually associated with itching. I suspect also that you may have a dry skin issue and suggest that you apply a moisturizer on your skin <3 minutes after bathing and see if this helps. Does exercise or after a hot shower induce the same reaction? Let's hear from others. ...Read more

I have had skin colored bumps on my wrist for about a week. And the itch. What could they be. And what could cause them.

Allergic reaction: Itchy bumps on the wrist usually means that you got something on your wrist that you are allergic to. You are on prednisone. This should help them to go away more quickly. Hydrocotisone 1% cream might help and does not require a prescription. Apply cold water when they are itching and this will usually stop the itchy you may need a prescription cream. Rash usually goes away in 6 on its own. ...Read more
