I have a quick question. I just found out that I have OA in two of my fingers of my right hand. I am unable to take anti-inflammatories due to my Ulcerative Colitis. Is there another form of relief I can use? I just got back from the doc and she had me do a wax dip and it sort of helped but I can't walk around all day with my hand in a vat of wax! Do the otc creams really work for OA pain - such as Aspercream or BlueEmu? I've tried the BlueEmu and it helps a bit but it's very short lasting. Is there any other cream on the market that lasts longer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated since my right hand is my dominant hand and it makes doing things quite the challenge.
