Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.
May I know your age and gender please?
Which joints are painful?
Do you have morning stiffness?
What about the knuckles?
Do you see any redness or swelling in the thumb?
Is it the base of thumb that hurts or the whole of it?
Alright. Base of thumb is a common anatomical location for osteoarthritis. Step wise treatment approach includes the following.
I suggest you start with the first step. That usually requires a prescription from doctor. You may get it on the phone.
