Hi Nilawati,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Tingling, painful, and swollen hands can be caused by one of them by an injury. Injuries, for example due to hard impact on the hands, due to excessive use of hands (overuse), and so on, can trigger the release of inflammatory mediators which ultimately causes the hands to feel pain, swelling, redness, palpable warm, and difficult to move. This swelling in the hand can then cause blood flow to be not smooth and nerve function is also disrupted, which in turn makes the hands tingling. Depending on the severity of the injury, this condition can heal by itself, but there are also those that require special treatment from a doctor.


In addition to injury, it can also be tingling, pain, and swelling in your hands arising from other factors, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout arthritis, nerve pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tenosynovitis, diabetes, insect bites, skin infections, and so on.


You should visit a doctor or neurologist directly at the nearest health facility so that further treatment can be given in relation to your condition. Radiological examination, for example x-rays, ultrasound, CT scans, etc. can also doctor recommend you if deemed necessary.


In the meantime, you can compress with warm water or apply a pain reliever cream on your hand (for example, those containing paracetamol). Avoid careless massaging, pulling, or massaging hands that are painful so that no more severe tissue damage occurs. Elevate swollen hands while sleeping. Finally, avoid over-exertion using a painful hand.


Hope this helps ...
