Numb Palms, Accompanied By The Appearance Of Rashes And Reddish Bumps?
want to ask my father in the palm of his hand at first just could not feel the pain whether it was pinched and it was left alone a few days ago when it was made work really red and in his hand began to have small bumps to medium and reddish color and it did not hurt. Can that be said to be a cyst?
Thank you for the question.
The palms which are initially numb, followed by the appearance of rashes and reddish bumps, actually do not typically indicate the presence of cysts. More likely, complaints like this arise due to the following conditions:
Shingles (chicken pox)
Irritant contact dermatitis
Other conditions, such as clavus, other skin infections, benign or malignant tumors, hyperkeratosis, gout arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
This condition seems to need to be examined directly to a doctor or dermatologist in order to evaluate possible causes. Enough with a physical examination, often doctors can identify if there are dangerous conditions. In some cases, the doctor may also conduct additional examinations, such as biopsy, to find out the right management.
In the meantime, you can help your father in his daily activities. Do not let him activity too heavily using his hands that have complaints. Make sure he always keeps his hands clean, not in contact with substances that are hot, dirty, or at risk of causing allergies and irritations on his skin. Also make sure your father does not squeeze or slough off the lump in his hand.
Hope this helps ...
