Hi!
Swollen and hot hands can be due to arthritis, especially rheumatoid, gout, polycythemia vera causing clots in small blood vessels, deep vein thrombosis, allergic or contact dermatitis, hypothyroidism and acromegaly (in abnormally tall people).  Possibility of rheymatoid arthritis or gout is more as the small joints ache.  Please discuss with your doctor and get this investigated. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
