Hi. I am a 26 year old female. For the past year I have been suffering from a condition that no one can seem to diagnose or treat. I had a sudden onset of extremely red and swollen fingers. It almost looks as if I stuck half of my hands into boiling water. The only thing that has ever cleared the condition was prednisone - but when discontinued after 6 months, came back even more aggressive. I am absolutely miserable and want to get my hands back. This is debilitating and so frustrating. Desperate for opinions and answers.
