My left hand first finger knuckle burning and sharp pain. There is no redness or swelling. Sudden onset two days ago, with no relief even after rest?

More info?: This could be gout, though there would usually be redness. Rheumatoid arthritis comes to mind but usually no sudden onset and generally more joints that one small finger joint. It would be good to know if there's been any recent trauma, spider bite, stick with a thorn? Does finger ever get stuck when bent? ...Read more

Early Trigger finger: Sounds like the early stages of a trigger finger, before it starts to catch. See if you have a tender spot on your palm, at the base of your pinky where there's a bony bump. Nsaids might help if this is the case. An orthopaedic or hand surgeon can check it out and see if an injection is appropriate. ...Read more

My knuckles and fingers started getting red and dry a few years, especially in the winter. Is this this just dry hands or something else?

Also be sure to wear gloves if you wash dishes. Arthritis symptoms include pain and stiffness, but what you are describing sounds like dry, chapped skin. The same thing happens to me every winter! ...Read more

Eczema will get you: At a very young age, and it continues throughout your life. Sometimes a certain lotion or chemical in the lotion will make it worse. Try to use different unscented moisturizers, even prescription ones, to see if it would help alleviate the problem. I would put the moisturizer on several times a day.

I have a red rash on my hand and knuckles its dry and burns. I think it's a allergic reaction. How long should I wait to see if it goes away.?

7-10 days?: But it is hard to say since it depends much on how severe the reaction has been. Most hand dermatitis are from irritant (soap, detergent, machine oil, frequent washing, frequent hand sanitizer usage etc) Try some topical hydrocortisone cream for a few days and use only unscented soap. Apply hand lotion often especially after washing hands. See dermatologist if not helpful. ...Read more
