What do you advise if i stopped cracking my knuckles but throught out the day my finger feels really painful and sore.. Why is this?

See details: You question is difficult to understand, The pain is unlikely to be related to either cracking knuckles or to stop cracking them. Have the finger evaluated if the pain is significant. ...Read more

No relation to pain: Cracking your knuckles has no relation to pain in the digits. The sound of knuckle cracking is the pop of a nitrogen bubble that develops in the joint. You should be evaluated by a hand specialist to determine the cause of your finger soreness. Many reasons other than knuckle cracking that may account for this soreness. ...Read more

Hyperextender: You have been chronically hyperextending your knuckles for years and now likely have some arthritis. Stop cracking knuckles, look at hands and make sure all of the "knuckles" look the same and that there is no redness or swelling. ...Read more

Very possible : You need an xray, improperly healed fractures of your metacarpals or proximal phalanges can leave you with chronic pain issues, inability to use your hand adequately, poor grasp and a visibly deformed hand. The solution for these latter problems are a lot more complicated with extensive recovery compared to just having a cast or pins in for a few weeks. Do not ignore this problem. ...Read more

Have sore bruised feeling in my pointer and ring finger knuckles, theyre slightly reddish purple and itch, the skin isnt dry and not really swollen?

Have sore  bruised feeling in my pointer and ring finger knuckles, theyre slightly reddish purple and itch, the skin isnt dry and not really swollen?

Not Sure: Hard to say what could be going on from your description. Things like excema, or psoriasis can cause skin redness and itchiness, although they don't usually cause pain. Other types of skin problems from allergic reactions to scabies could cause itchiness. If topical Hydrocortisone doesn't help get it checked out by your doctor. ...Read more
