Hello Beautiful Sirait,
Inflammation (inflammation) in the body is characterized by redness, swelling, feeling warmer, the presence of lumps, and also pain. Is the swelling, redness, and pain that you feel in the fingers and toes especially in the joints? Chances are you have arthritis or inflammation of the joints. Migratory arthritis is associated with the following diseases:
Lupus disease (systemic lupus erythematosus)
Reiter's disease (reactive arthritis)
Paraneoplastic syndrome caused by a malignant process (cancer)
A proper diagnosis needs to be made before giving a treatment. In addition to taking an history by asking about your history of complaints and risk factors such as other families who suffer the same thing, the doctor also needs to do a direct physical examination. In addition, in the case of migratory arthritis, doctors also need to do some supporting examinations such as blood laboratories (including rheumatoid factor) and X-rays.
Treatment for cases of migratory arthritis includes physiotherapy, adjusted exercise, administration of drugs, to surgery if there has been severe damage to the joints that interfere with movement. Some of the above arthritis diseases are caused by autoimmune, namely the body's own immunity that attacks parts of the joints, as a result the patient is inevitably taking drugs for a long time / years or even a lifetime to prevent acute attacks and also reduce symptoms that felt. Treatment is also needed to prevent further joint damage which will limit the movement of the patient's joints.
If you experience an acute attack of arthritis at home, to reduce the symptoms can compress the painful part with a warm compress and rest the area of activity for a few moments. However, then sports or exercises involving the joints must be done to prevent joint stiffness.
To determine whether what you are experiencing is related to joints or only limited to the skin or a disease that involves both such as psoriasis arthritis, you can visit a doctor directly to do the examination. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
