Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been diagnosed with Raynaud's disease, and I keep getting painful red bumps on my hands that burn and itch. Also, some of my fingers are painful on the tips and sides around my nails. They last for a while but never completely go away. It almost looks like I have been burnt and feel that way too. Could this be urticaria vasculitis?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

Raynaud's disease is associated with other disorders which may give rise to bumps and papules on hands.

I would like to know whether you suffer from any muscular weakness or have difficulty getting out of a chair or climbing stairs.

Also, do you have a rash on the face or around the eyes?

Please give me these details so I can help you identify the cause.

This is not likely to be vasculitis. Instead, I am looking at myositis conditions. First, however, I need to know if you have such symptoms as I mentioned above.

Thank you and take care.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
