Burning pinky knuckle pain in hand. It's only palm side and present when i open/close my hand. No swelling/redness/numbness, just dull burn w/movement?

I have red blotches on palms of my hands the feeling of my hands are really weird texture only started yesterday but hasn't went away.

Palmar erythema: You picked a really complex symptom. Sometimes it also affects the soles (plantar erythema).

If it doesn't go away in a few days, a trip to your PCP is needed. Skin peeling may occur later. ...Read more
