You : You may be dealing with a fungal infection. Try an over the counter anti-fungal cream like clotrimazole; you can apply the cream twice a day for a week. If you do not notice an improvement then it may just be a dermatitis and you may need a stronger steroid cream. At this point you would need to be evaluated by your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

I always wake up with swollen fingers nd my arms and hand feel heavy nd with a bit of pain what can be causing this ? Can this be a due to my anxiaty
NOT anxiety: Painful swollen fingers may be due to some form of 'auto-immune' arthritis. Simple blood tests (sed rate/crp) can quickly test for inflammation and confirmatory testing (ccp, ra, ana) may be neeed. I would get seen by primary care doctor. For now you can take nsaids (i suggest Aleve (naproxen) 2 in am, 2pm). Anxiety should not cause edema per se. Hope you are better soon! ...Read more
