Prognosis For Dactylitis Finger Or Toe InflammationPrognosis for dactylitis, or inflammation in the fingers or toes varies depending on the cause. Dactylitis caused by some disorders have full recovery, while others may have long term affects.
Prognosis For Different Types Of InflammationIf the inflammation is caused by an infection, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs should remove the infection and full recovery is usually expected with a positive prognosis.
PSA, or psoriatic arthritis and RA, or rheumatoid arthritis however while treatable, may cause disfigurement or long term joint problems even after the inflammation is dealt with, if it is left untreated for too long.
To prevent long term damage and a negative prognosis it is important to see a doctor and get the inflammation under control as soon as possible so that there is no or little long term joint damage.
