Pain In The Thumb That Appears Suddenly Accompanied By Redness?
Suddenly my thumb was sore in motion, even though I didn’t wear anything. Seen from the palms inside, it’s really red, the bones also hurt. What’s wrong, why ??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the thumb that appears suddenly accompanied by redness may indicate the following conditions:
Arthritis (inflammation of the joints), for example due to: Gout (gout arthritis) Rheumatoid arthritis Psoriatic arthritis Injuries, for example due to being hit or crushed by a heavy object, excessive friction Infection, for example due to boils, shingles, insect bites or other animals Sound disorders, for example carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, etc. Does the pain feel very intense? Is there also swelling on the side of the thumb that is painful?
If you feel the pain is very intense, you should not take it lightly. Go directly to your doctor or neurologist for a more in-depth evaluation of the pain. In a condition that is suspected of being severe, the doctor can direct you to undergo x-rays, blood tests, ultrasound, and so on if necessary. In the meantime, avoid massaging or over-massaging the sore thumb so that the complaint doesn't get worse. First, rest your sore thumb from excessive activity. You can first compress the sore thumb with warm water or apply a pain relieving cream containing paracetamol to reduce the pain.
Hope it helps ..
