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.

Bumps aren't normal : there on your pinky. Do you mean nodule? Circulation may be an issue during the cold weather. Discuss this with your PCP so s/he can evaluate you further and see what can be done for treatment options. ...Read more

On x-mas a knife went through my hand, uncontrollable blood lead to stitches and now my stitches out.Area still split redness swollen and sore, why?

Need to see it.: A picture = 1000 words (whereas u only get 100 letters), so consider HealthTap Prime or scheduling an appt w/ ur doctor 4 confirmation of the following: scar tissue has only 70% of strength of original skin & less blood flow; I think u r seeing redness & splitting bcuz ur skin is not growing back whole like when u were 3. 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

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.

Trust your physician. If you have doubts "see" another physician. ...Read more

Someone pressed an inhaler on my hand and pumped it as many times as he could and now it's red and sore. What should I do?

Someone pressed an inhaler on my hand and pumped it as many times as he could and now it's red and sore. What should I do?

Let it heal: I'm not sure if the redness and soreness is from the medication, the propellant, or just the pressure of the inhaler. In any case, it should heal within a few days. Try to avoid any further trauma to your hand while it is healing. ...Read more

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?

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

Cud b d hand: The changes you describe do not seem to be associated with anything worrisome as far as i can tell. It certainly could fit changes consistent with repeated and vigorous rubbing from the use of something such as a hand. Try stopping that activity for a while longer and see if your clit and hood clear up. If not please see your doctor. ...Read more

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?

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

I think I have tendonitis. Palm of hand is red  and are sore. Also wrist/hand part is also sore. Also pain in front of shoulder possibly rotator cuff.?

It : 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. A peripheral neurpathy can be due to a variety of things, rsd can be ralted to an injured nerve or nerves, hormonal and metabolic problems including thyroid diseease and diabetes can affect circulation, nerve tissue and dryness of skin. 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. Talk to your physician about seeing a specialist or two with the idea that they may not solve your issue directly but can rule out some otherwise simpler diagnoses. ...Read more

I injected meth and missed my arm and hand got very hot and red then my fingers went numb after that my arm started getting hives and its kinda sore and numb what can I do at home to be okay? ????

Go to ER: Meth may cause severe constriction of the blood vessels supplying your fingers. If it is not already too late and you are still having symptoms, go to the ER to get the meth effect reversed. There is a potential danger of losing one or more of your digits. By the way, you need to get some help on your meth addiction quickly. ...Read more

1 day ago I got this lump on top of my right hand. Have not hit it or anything. No signs of a bite. It is a little red very swollen and tender. Possib?

Lump: A lump on the back of the hand, unrelated to injury, raises the possibilities of an insect bite or a cyst but the latter usually wouldn't pop up immediately. Since there is tenderness and some redness, I recommend that a physician examine you for diagnosis and treatment because of presence of possible infection. ...Read more
