I Also Have Painful Blister On Finger Joint My Doctor Says It Related To Arthritis Is This Correct ?

Answer

it's hard to answer your question without knowing more information. Did you doctors say whether osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis? Do you have arthritis already and if so, which kind? Are you on any medication where this might be a side effect? Have you had these kinds of blisters before? What does a blister look like and how long have you had it? Did your doctor give you a cream for the blister?

skin problems can accompany certain types of arthritis and it is also possible that people can get psoriatic arthritis, which is a combination of psoriasis and that type of arthritis that looks a lot like rheumatoid arthritis. If you only have one blister, I doubt very much that you have psoriatic arthritis, though. It is also possible to get in problems as a side effect of some of the RA medications, such as the Biologics.

I would recommend that you go back to your doctor to ask more questions about this. It sounds as if they didn't give you enough information to make you comfortable.
