Red spot on base of thumb, carpal tunnel syndrome, numbness in thumb. What is it?
Hi, ive had this little redspot on the base of my thumb eversince i got carpal tunnel syndrome 3 months ago from using the weed whacker. No pain in the wrist just complete numbness in my thumb that went away after 2 months. But anyway the red spot goes away when i press on it, and it reappears when i stop pressing on it. I just wana know is the little red spot a sympthom of muscle loss in the base of my thumb?
Hello. Thanks for writing to us. The numbness in your thumb is related to the carpal tunnel syndrome. It is due to a mild nerve compression. The red spot is likely to be due to a capillary malformation. This is not worrisome. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
