Fingertips Feel Rough And Hard, What Is The Cure And Causes?
If you mean rough, hard and painful skin, then this condition could be caused by calluses / callus and fish eye / clavus. Calluses and fish eye occur due to excessive friction on the skin. Handling to deal with calluses and fish eye can be by cutting calluses / fish eye, giving salicylic acid, and surgery if necessary to correct the position of the bone that causes friction when needed.
However, it should also be noted that in addition to calluses and fisheyes, there are several other factors that can also cause hard, rough, and painful complaints on the skin, including:
Gout arthritis / gout disease
To determine the cause of your complaint, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly, yes. The doctor will carry out the necessary examinations by interview, physical examination, and if necessary supporting examinations with X-rays and blood tests. Furthermore, if the cause is known then the doctor can provide the right treatment for you.
While waiting to see a doctor, you should keep your skin clean, avoid excessive friction, and if it hurts, give a warm compress.
