Is there a connection with hormonal imbalance? U003c / span u003e
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling of the fingers, feeling tight, and thick as you experience is probably not directly related to hormonal imbalance. This complaint can arise due to several reasons, for example:
Insect bites Contact dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation due to contact with irritating or allergenic substances) Skin infections caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, mites (eg fungi, impetigo) Neurodermatitis (chronic skin inflammation triggered or exacerbated by stress) Immune disorders, eg lichen planus , psoriasis, lupus Arthritis, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, gout Hypertrophic scars (formation of excessive scar tissue after inflammation) Callus (calluses), and so on. There are many hormones that circulate in the human body. Disorders of this hormonal balance can appear in clinical manifestations that vary depending on the type of hormone. In women, what often happens is a reproductive hormone imbalance, which is generally characterized by irregular menstruation, weight gain or decline, abdominal cramps, breast pain or swelling, fertility problems, mood swings, dry and itchy skin, and so on. It is also possible that this condition worsens the complaint on your finger, but is not the main cause of the complaint.
We recommend that, so that the cause of your complaint can be identified properly, check yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist. With thorough observation, doctors can generally find out the possible triggers of your complaint, including with the best treatment to overcome it. Some supporting examinations, for example laboratory, allergy tests, X-rays, and so on can also be done by doctors.
At this time, you should not manipulate the affected finger in any way, including massaging, massaging, or giving careless treatment. Avoid the potential for contact between the skin of the fingers and substances that can trigger allergies or irritation, for example detergents, excessive cosmetics, or other chemical substances.
