I have lines on the back of my hands but these lines are very red and sting as well as my knuckles are rough and wide with lots of line What's going n?

Dryness?: There are lines on the hands of every one at the knuckles. This is due to the skin folding when the fingers are out straight or not bent. This will become more prominent and red when the skin is very dry. What do you do for a living.? do you have your hands in excess water? Do you use too much alcohol sanitizer.? SEe your doctor for further guidance and in meantime use moisturizer ...Read more

I have been gardening and maybe pulled out a few nettles wearing gloves. I now have stinging sensation in the knuckles of my right hand?

I have been gardening and maybe pulled out a few nettles wearing gloves. I now have stinging sensation in the knuckles of my right hand?

Ouch!: The pain from touching nettles is severe but brief. After an hour or so, or less, it hurts much less. Wear gloves henceforth! It is a horrible pain., there is nothing like that in my experience. I have felt it once, and, I hope to never feel it again! Wash your hands with mild soap of course. Wash anything you touched after touching the nettles, too. ...Read more

Hard: Hard to tell without a clinical picture, but perhaps this is dyshidrotic eczema, which is very common on the hands. I assume you are talking about the skin and not the actual joint? Please read more about eczema and treatment options below. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Barely hit my hand/fingers & the vein/vessel burst, stings, hurts & then turns purple. I'm in my 30's & had this since a child. Why? What causes it?

Barely hit my hand/fingers & the vein/vessel burst, stings, hurts & then turns purple. I'm in my 30's & had this since a child. Why? What causes it?

Vein bursting: If you are experiencing increasing amounts of bruising, there are a few concerns. One would be if your blood is unusually thin. This can be because of low platelets (the clotting cell of your blood) or a decrease in the amounts of clotting factors. You should discuss this with your doctor as simple blood tests can diagnosis this. There can also be structural problems with the veins causing this. ...Read more

I get this stinging itch on the back of my hand and around my elbow and after I scratch these tiny bumps appear in clusters what could that be?

Dermatographism: Your skin is in a state of hyperreactivity which could be caused by an allergic mechanism to something internal or external but often no obvious cause is found. If you can't get relief with antihistamines like benadryl (causes drowsiness)or Claritin (which is nondrowsy) consult an allergist. ...Read more

Hi I have a big bump on my hand and it itches really bad and when I itch. It clear stuff comes out. And it stings when I touch or itch it. What is it?

Could be..: A couple of things, but without a picture of it or seeing it myself it's hard to say for sure. It could be an allergic reaction to something you came in contact with or a reaction to a bug bite. It could also possibly be a skin infection. I would recommend having your doc take a look at it to determine the best course of treatment. ...Read more

Hi I'm 19 and from the time I was 16 I have been experiencing burning/stinging pain in my right hand's vein is that normal are should I worry?

Possible...: Sounds like carpal tunnel syndrome which presents with hand pain which could be burning and associated with numbness and occasional cramping especially when using your hand. This is caused by repetitive use of the hand and nerve irritation. There are also other nerve irritation syndromes that cause similar symptoms esp. If you have had injuries in the past.

I have a bite on my hand it has a red ring around it and has a blister in the center. It doesn't itch but kind of burns and stings if it's touched.

Local reaction: When an insect bites you it leaves behind some of it's saliva or a toxin. Your body reacts at the site to respond to the injury by using chemicals that cause the redness and itching. Different types of bites have different appearances. Try mild soap/water and some 1% hydrocortisone. Have your MD check it this week if not improving in a few days.

I got a bee sting on the top of my finger and 1 day later my hand is swelling up. Is this normal? How can I get the swelling down?

Diphenhydramine: A day has passed, which tells me you are not experiencing a life threatening allergy (it does happen, called anaphylaxis). If having breathing difficulty see an md, otherwise make sure stinger is out, and take 25-50 mg of Diphenhydramine (otc benadryl), it is very good at reducing swelling due to allergy. It will make you drowsy, so be aware. Good luck! ...Read more
