Probably you are having rheumatoid nodules.
They are firm lump located under the skin near joints.
About 30 percent patients of rheumatoid arthritis
are having rheumatoid nodules.
They are connected to fascia or tendons.
Rheumatoid nodules may be increased in size by methotraxate used for R A.
, as smoking can increase rheumatoid nodules.
Injection of steroid
in nodule may shrink the size.
Or surgical excision may be done.
You consult either dermatologist
I hope you got my answer.
