I have a swollen, red, itchy raised area between my knuckle and lower joint of index finger. It is warm and swelling is same after 1 day. What is it?

You may try taking Motrin and anti- histamine to see if this improves your finger. You can also apply neosporin antibiotic ointment if you are developing localized infection.

If it gets worse over time (increase in pain, fevers, chills, more redness), then it may be infected or the lupus may be reacting. If so, then seeing the doc may be your best bet. ...Read more
