Tiny Bump On Finger

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have this tiny bump on my index finger that concerns me. I asked my dermatologist last month and he said to keep an eye on it. It actually kind of went down in size and now it's back. It's only about a millimeter. It does not look like a wart or ulcer....any clue? Maybe it's just one of those things we get with age.

xo,

Tangelo

Hey Tangie,

 

Welcome back, hope your trip was wonderful!

 

My first thought was a wart actually - I know you don't like the thought of that lol but were you by chance kissing any toads while you were gone? hehehe

 

Seriously, I had a spot like you were describing and it was a wart, it would come and go (not entirely) but it ended up be a planters wart. I used an over the counter "freeze it" type device and in a month it was gone. However! talk with your doctor before you try something like that due to Raynaud's etc.

 

Oh I just thought of something else, put some duct tape over it daily - warts can be treated that way as well. It must suffocate them or something.

 

Love ya!


Warm and gentle hugs,

Hi Tangie,

 

I missed something. Where did you go? Don't tell me somewhere warm and make me jealous!

 

I've had those tiny warts Sweet describes. They usually go away on their own in a month or two for me. My doctor suggested the duct tape too. I used it for a wart on my son's knee and it worked like a charm.


Take care,

Barefut

Hey Jen Jen,

 

I had one on my index finger also and when I showed it to my dr ( this was a couple years maybe less before sclero diagnosis) he had me get an x-ray. It was a calcium deposit.

 

I don't know where you went but welcome home.


Hugs,

Patty

Ladies,

Thank you for the information. If I ever figure out what it is I'll let ya'll know.

 

I just went to Fayetteville, AR to visit my family. It was awesome. Barefut, it was warm there! It was really humid though and I had a hard time breathing.

 

xo,

Tangelo
