It’s been a week since my index finger has shriveled up and looks exactly like after taking a shower/washing clothes. Why is that? What is the cure? Thanks

1 Answer:

Hi Prili,

The shriveled fingertips when the body is exposed to water or cold air for a long time is an adaptation of the body in increasing the ability to grip in wet or damp hands. This complaint is not only experienced when exposed to water for a long time such as when swimming or washing, while in the mountains or in a cold climate, but also when your hands are experiencing excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

If you feel the complaint is experienced only by the index finger, you should not hesitate to immediately consult a doctor. The complaints you are experiencing may be caused by the following conditions:

disorders of the sympathetic nerves constriction of blood vessels disorders of the keratin of the palms What you can do at this time is use a hand moisturizer, or if you experience excessive sweating of the palms, provide a tissue or a soft handkerchief to dry your damp hands.

hope it helps,

dr, Laras
