Customer Question
I was recently lifting...

I was recently lifting weights in the gym doing tricep extensions (lying on the bench - behind the head). I sat the weight down and it pinched the area between my thumb and

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I pinched the area between my thumb and forefinger. It has since been dry and flaky. Both in the pinched area and one of my finger tips.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No.... I don't think so

Are you talking about the webbing between your thumb and index finger ? Which directly lifts the weights i understand . ?

Well its better if you wear gloves for lifting the heavy weights as this would not improve unless you stop lifting weights.

For now you can apply vaseline or petroleum jelly on it. If it seems flared up or red the you can apply hydrocortisone ( as this can be contact allergy too ).

I hope you find it useful.

Let me know if you need any further help

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
