Hi, Tammy. It seems like discussions seem to run sympthetically. This must be Calcinosis and finger ulcer week. It does sound like this could be the start of a finger ulcer. I hope you will take the time to read up on the link I gave you and also our Digital (Fingers and Toes) Ulcer page. You should definitely bring it up to your rheumatologist in October. As far as I am aware, there is nothing you can do to 'make it go away' before it has erupted, but I am not a doctor.

It sounds more like an ulcer than calcinosis. I would definitely consult your primary care physician asap, or would it be possible to ring your rheumies office and ask for advice? Mine always stresses the importance of letting them know about impending ulcers as soon as I suspect one- it is much easier treat them before they get established. In the meantime you should try and keep the area dry.
