Finger Ulcers

Recommended Posts

I have a small sore on th top of my thumb near my nail. My question is, how do I know if its a finger ulcer or not. It really hurts if I bump it! I have had it for a week or so. how do I know what it is and how do I heal it so if its not a ulcer it won't turn into one. I see picturs of ulcers and now I am freaked about getting one.

I am about in my bed from the pain so I dont want anything else added on.

Like Susie I haven't had this experience either, but we do have a list of creams and things you can do for ulcers. Hopefully you find something that works for you. I would definite go see your rheumatologist because if it is indeed the first of an ulcer you might need to start a treatment to prevent futures one. With the cold weather approaching you need to be looking at prevention.
I hope the pain goes away very soon and that the sore subsides without advancing further. Let us know how you are doing.
Big Hugs,
