For eight days now I have been experiencing discomfort on my right middle, ring and little fingers.
My knuckles are sore, swollen, red and stiff. It started with what looked like a paronychia on my little finger. It then spread to my ring and middle fingers. I noticed a blister-like lesion on my left-middle finger but otherwise this hand does not hurt.
I also have red painful patches on the inside of my right hand fingers.
If someone recognises these symptoms by my description and by the accompanying photos, please get in touch. My doctor does not know what it is and has asked for blood tests for further examination.
