What would a broken thumb look like?

Depends

Thumb
Thst depends on how bad the break is. If a bone is just chipped in a small area or even have an avulsed or torn tendon, the bone may look normal but jist not move right, while a large break may be comminuted and very misshapen. If there is a question, if you can't grip or squeeze things then you should get an x-ray.

What is my thumb abnormality called? I was born with it. they look like fingers and i can only bend them about 10 degrees.

I

I wonder if it is Congenital Trigger Thumb, which is a tightening up of the tendon. It is a rare condition. In general, this is corrected at an early age by surgery. There are other congenital conditions that may have caused this. If it is restricting your activities, you should see a Plastic Surgeon or Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in hand surgery.

What would a broken thumb or finger feel like?

Terrible bad!!!!!!!!

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
One reliable sympton of a broken bone is horrible pain. The broken bone just does not want to be moved at all. A bad strain could also give just as much pain, so that is why your physician often needs an x-ray to help sort things out. Some fractures such as an impacted fracture of the upper arm or a skull fracture may not be that painful, so we do not just go by pain. Go for an exam by your MD

Both wrist lock like trigger thumb. They both get stuck. What could this be? Look at Utube locked wrist &thats my wrist

Clicking and locking

Wrist_pain
in a wrist could be a ligament injury or tear, a looseness in the wrist causing a "clunk" when the wrist bones ar out of position and suddenly "catch up" and snap into place, a snapping tendon that is out of place and other things ( BTW.. I looked up wrist lock on youtube and all I saw was defensive moves)

Dr. W. A. Batson answered:

I have pain on top of my right hand between my thumb and index finger. could there be a broken bone in there? that is what it feels like.

Arthritis

Joints
Unless you have fallen or had some significant traums to your hand it would be extremely unlikely that you have a broken bone. The joint at the base of the thumb in that area is the second most common site for arthritis. It affects women about six times as frequently as men -- and no it is not because they work harder -- but due to hormonal effects on the ligament causing them to be looser.

Infant son had kidney infection which was treated.He now has small area on his thumb and and middle finger that looked like it peeled off.What is this?

Peeling Skin

Open-uri20130324-3658-51uh3b
With a history of recent antibiotic therapy, it is possible this represents an allergic reaction to the antibiotic, especially if it was a penicillin derivative. As long as it doesn't appear to be getting worse or his condition remains the same, it might be a mild, self-limited reaction. As an alternative, children often get eczema in these areas, which responds to cortisone creme.
