Red Sore On Knuckles
My pinky knuckle bump is red, about the size of a BB and has a white, dry "cap" on top. It floats within the skin and is sore when bumped.
I've been picking and pushing together my ring fingers knuckle and now there's a red spot as if sore. Is there anything I should be worried about?
I have aching pain in my pinky finger. No swelling/redness. Worse in the cold. Slight bump and I get a sharp, stabbing pain down tip into knuckle.
My hand got hit with the metal ramp of a flatbed trailer. One finger is numb and tingly. Knuckle is red & sore. Should i go to urgent care?
Best to to see a doctor for an x-ray to make sure you didn't crack your finger. Meanwhile ice it as much as you can. Best wishes

The soreness is from nerve irritation which is normal but won't go away soon ...Read more
Middle finger into Palm is sore & hurts. Dr said trigger finger. Could it be infection instead? No swelling or redness. No injury to hand. Only middle
Not likely infection:
Trigger finger is more common (especially in the dominant hand) in a healthy individual with no history of trauma, no redness, swelling. There is often a mass that can be felt and move with flexing and extending of the finger. If infection is present a present usually doesn't tolerate moving the finger.

My daughter who's 2 and a half, she has a red bum and complains that's its sore. She also keeps puting her hand down her diaper to scratch?
May be yeast : She may have a yeast infection which can be anywhere in the groin area and is very itchy. If not treated pain will usually develop. Frequent scratching can also lead to the development of a bacterial infection on top of the yeast. Nystatin, which is a rx cream, works well and can be prescribed by her provider. Once you have confirmed it is yeast you will not need to be seen if it happens again. ...Read more

My arm and hand is very sore. Veins show in hand and arm now i have a few very small red dots on my arm and left side of swollen forearm?
When i was a child the palm of my hand was red raw and sore. The skin would flake off and it was itchy. The ball of my foot also did it. Cause?
Possible allergy: It could have been an allergic reaction to something coming in contact with both your hands and feet. It could have been a type of eczema called dyshidrosis. It's unlikely that it was athlete's foot, which doesn't typically affect the palms, especially in children. Without seeing the rash, that's about as far as i can take it. ...Read more

It is hard to fully understand your description of symptoms such as these without further information regarding the diagnosis given thus far but there are several nerve related problems that can turn on or turn up the signal in nerves giving pain and discomfort.

Circulation conditions and temperture realted disorders can occur. Smoking can bring on a certain level of problems as well as certain medications
it is equally inport to rule out anything focal such as a peripheral nerve compression like carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel or a simple tendonitsi that aslo may be acting as an underlying trigger for your problem.
