Swelling In a 11 Year Olds Fingers

My daughter who is 11 years old is getting swelling in her fingers. Any idea what would cause this? Salt intake was our only guess, but she does not use alot of salt.

???swelling??
Uh oh...I have never heard of that...Scary....The only thing I can think of is you know how when you walk for a long time and your fingers start to swell from all the blood...Maybe its just filled with fluid or blood..Have you taken her to a doctor?? That might help ya never know....Maybe they could do a biopsy!!!


Good luck!!
I hope I was usefull!!! Breanna

Swelling of any kind can be a sign of a heart abnormality...Have her looked at for that. My son has an arythmic heart and gets swelling sometimes.

Good luck with everything,

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due peripheral vascular disease, Raynaud's, drugs or pomopholyx. Consult dermatologist to evaluate her.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
