I have a quarter sized red sore on both wrists I woke up with this and was wondering what it is. I have no fever or any other symptom?

Can't say for sure..: Can't say for sure but I can give you an idea of basic care of open wounds and when to see a doctor. Wash the areas well with soap & water, dry them well & apply a film of antibiotic ointment. Protect it with a bandage if there's a risk of injury or dirt. If it continues to spread, if you notice swollen glands or red streaks or if you get a fever, you will need an antibiotic. Hope this helps. ...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

Hi I have a red rash appeared on my wrist, it feels sore like when you get sunburnt any ideas what it could be?

Contact dermatitis?: Many things can cause rashes. The wrist is a common location for contact dermatitis from jewelry or watch bands. The other consideration is an allergic reaction to something topical like lotion or soap, or something ingested like certain foods. Infections can also cause rashes, so if you have fever or discharge from the rash see a physician. ...Read more

I have a wart like spot on the back of my wrist, it is very red and sore. It first appeared 6 months ago. Is it a wart.

I have a wart like spot on the back of my wrist, it is very red and sore. It first appeared 6 months ago. Is it a wart.

In such a case it's…: Best to have a doc examine the lesion. May be a simple wart, that can be frozen off, but might also be an early skin cancer from sun damage. So in-person inspection is very important to prevent nasty consequences if ignored. Be ready to tell doc when it appeared, if it's grown, if it hurts, if it bleeds, if it itches. Good history helps nail the diagnosis. ...Read more

Numbness/tingling/weakness in the fingers on the injured side? Do you take any blood thinner medicines? Arthritis medicines? Recommend seeing your doctor for formal exam. ...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.

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

Left side of clit&hood a bit red&sore/itchy wen touched no weird discharge/odor cud hand sex(2 weeks b4)be d cause? Happens randomly, shud i worrywhat2do?

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
