Many pathologies in the body provoke the formation of bumps on the fingers. Such formations lead to limited mobility of the joints, a decrease in their flexibility, and, ultimately, to partial or complete disability. Let’s try to find out the causes of the appearance of bumps on the fingers and, and determine the methods of treatment.
Bumps on the knuckles of the fingers
Changes in the joints of the hands are one of the most common reasons for visiting a surgeon or orthopedist. Often, such deformations are associated with age-related changes in the woman’s body and the onset of menopause. Common causes of bumps include diseases such as:
- gout – the deposition of uric acid in the form of crystals;
- arthritis and osteoarthritis – inflammatory diseases in the joints;
- arthrosis – destructive changes in articular tissues;
- salt deposition as a result of metabolic disorders.
Bumps on the folds of the fingers of the hand may appear in people who, due to the performance of certain types of work, keep their hands in cold water for a long time, for example, when cleaning fish, or keep the position of the hand unchanged for a long time with simultaneous tension of the fingers (when playing musical instruments, working at a computer etc.) Often the cause of deformity of the joints are:
- improper diet;
- maintaining an unhealthy lifestyle;
Lump under the skin on the finger
The growth on one of the phalanges of the fingers is a hygroma (synovial cyst). Most often, a lump filled with a viscous liquid is found next to the nail on the middle finger. This disease is typical for representatives of professions whose work is associated with a significant load on the hands, for example, for massage therapists. Also, the cause of the appearance of hygroma can be repeatedly repeated injuries of the hand.
Treatment for bumps on fingers
A complete treatment of the disease is possible only under the supervision of a specialist. The doctor, having determined the cause of the disease and made an accurate diagnosis, prescribes adequate therapy with the inclusion of:
- medical preparations;
- topical agents (ointments, gels, creams);
- exercise therapy.
An equally important place in therapy is the observance of a diet and a smoky day regimen.
A certain therapeutic effect is given by compresses from a mixture of honey, crushed wormwood and cabbage leaves, blue clay applications. Traditional medicine recommends taking ½ cup of cabbage juice daily on an empty stomach in the morning and evening.
