Yes: A small/superficial injury to the skin of your hand should heal without any issue, even with your wrist exercises. It sounds like the injury is not over a joint so you should be fine. Just keep the wound clean (frequent hand washing and keep it covered until it heals or a scab forms) to prevent infection. ...Read more
Iam cracking may hand allot now I feel pain in my hand if I didn't do it often, I tried to exercises my hand by holding a small ball all the time??
Knuckle cracking: Although knuckle-cracking has never been shown to cause arthritis, it is possible to strain ligaments when you pull on the fingers so hard. The cracking sound is from an air bubble that pops. It is a sign that you pulled too hard. Excessive hand exercises may just aggravate the soreness. Leaving your hands alone except for normal activities will eventually reduce pain. ...Read more

I have these small flesh colored bumps on my wrists and they come and go but they never go away completely. What's the issue? Any solutions?
1 look = 1000 words: It is really hard to say from this text. A picture can possibly tell more, but often they have to be seen with the human eye. It could be some type of contact dermatitis if they come and go. Warts can appear as flesh color bumps, but usually come and don't go. The best plan is to have a doctor who knows skin problems look at them. ...Read more
