Swollen finger pads and red nail beds
I've had problems with fingers for a 3 months now i.e. red nail beds, a little swelling, itching, blistering, red streaks under the skin from finger tips to knuckles. When i began 200mg Plaquenil mid-July symptoms improved dramatically. But now, my little finger is really quite red and swollen at the tip and underside on the finger pad, and puffy all around the cuticle. I have a positive anti-dsDNA but not yet offically diagnosed with Lupus (though suspected). Are on-going finger problems and swelling a usual Lupus symptom, even while on Plaquenil???
