Brief Answer:
Does not appear infected

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using 'Ask a Doctor'. Fortunately, it does not appear that these abrasions have become infected. The black spot appears to be dried blood. I would just continue to keep the area clean, using soap and water, and you can also put antibiotic ointment on it twice a day. Keep monitoring it for increasing redness, swelling, pain, or pus discharge, in which case you would need antibiotic pills, but from how it looks now, I think it should heal fine.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any other questions about that, and I would be glad to discuss it with you further.

Brief Answer:
Pins and needles is not a known symptoms of COVID-19

Detailed Answer:
Sorry for the delay, my son was just born yesterday! As for your questions, no, pins and needles is not a known symptom of the COVID-19 virus, though it can be a side effect of Humira (though it would not make sense that this happens before your shot, so there may be another cause). Humira does lower your immune system, so you should be especially careful about protecting yourself from getting the virus, staying out of public places if possible. I would also talk with your rheumatologist about this. But without a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, no, I would not suspect you have the virus at this time.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help any way I can.

Brief Answer:
About 2 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. Humira takes about 2 weeks for your body to get rid of half of it, and by that time much of its effect will be decreased. By 1-2 months, I would expect practically all of its effect to be gone.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help.

Brief Answer:
This is how Humira works

Detailed Answer:
Your psoriatic arthritis is caused by your immune system attacking your joints, and so the Humira works by interfering with the immune system. This can be a difficult balance between the benefit of protecting your joints and skin and relieving the pain, with the risks of getting infections from the decreased immune system.

It's hard to say what could be causing your hand tightness, though cracking your knuckles would not usually cause this sensation. How long have you felt this? Is it always there or does it come and go?

Brief Answer:
May be a nerve problem

Detailed Answer:
Especially with the loss of strength, I would wonder whether there was a nerve problem to the hand, which could be caused by something like carpel tunnel syndrome, or even from a pinched nerve in your neck. You will likely need to have a doctor examine your hand, and if there is definitely loss of strength, some further nerve studies will likely need to be done.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help any way I can.

Brief Answer:
Cracking knuckles does not usually cause this problem

Detailed Answer:
Cracking knuckles would not be expected to cause the symptoms you are describing. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the canal that the nerves to your hand go through becomes narrow and presses on those nerves. Typically patients first notice numbness and tingling in the thumb, 2nd and 3rd digits (pointer finger and middle finger). This can eventually progress to weakness in the hand. Symptoms from carpel tunnel syndrome usually occur when flexing or extending the wrist, such as driving, typing, or holding a phone.

Brief Answer:
Hernia can be worsened with lifting

Detailed Answer:
For your hand, it is hard to say what is causing this without an examination and further testing.

Yes, a hernia can occur or worsen with lifting heavy objects, reaching for something may also make it worse or more noticeable as well. There are different types of hernias that occur at different locations, but they all share that characteristic of being worsened with increasing intrabdominal pressure.
