Hello, thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
Hot to touch i.e. the temp of that part is somewhat increased than other part of body.
It was due to infection or some allergy but there was no itch so might be a case of some infection.
You were on Co codemol for temporary arthritis.
Strep throat is due to infection in throat in which there is cold and flu like symptom present.
Streptococcus are the bacteria which from throat enter into blood and reaches to joints and lately in heart.
Your's wrist and knee joints also hurt , a sign of involvement of joints.
So please get in blood examination and blood culture to rule out streptococcus or any pathogens in above sample.
R A factor for rheumatoid arthritis must be checked at this stage.
Consult a physician and have treatment accordingly.
