Red bumps on hands

Hi 👋

Does anyone else get red bumps on the backs of your knuckles and fingers, I assume it's an autoimmune thing ( I have had primary sjorgrens for 8 years), there quite painful sometimes especially if you knock the ones on your knuckles, have attached a photo, excuse my hands. Thank you in advance 😊 I also have raynauds

Perfectly lovely hands!!

The 'bumps' I get are somewhat different to that, less defined. Mine are Psoriasis, another autoimmune condition which has developed since I got Sjögren's, so I can't really help you Shoad. However we do get strange things with these autoimmune conditions.

Hopefully someone else will chime in with recognition of what you have!

Hi Shoad👋

I have Erythema Nodosum. It causes red swellings that are painful. They are autoimmune related. I have gotten them on my legs and feet age 18. Now I get them hands & forearms too. Maybe this info will help...hope so. Best wishes🦋

Hello Shoad.Truly grateful to see your post as I get similar on my hands and like you they can become painful and yes have Raynauds as well as SS and Fibromyalgia etc. My GP always says ummmm must SS related. Will be interested in your feedback and others.
