    I’ve got nodes on several finger joints. Would like to know what cream is being recommended here. They aren’t painful fingers x luckily so don’t know if I will need it but it’s worth knowing.

    Hello @Ribble and welcome to the community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that that will be your experience as well.

    One cream which is useful is Capsaicin which is only available on prescription.

    I have arthritis in my thumbs so tend to use this cream to ease the pain, but a word or warning is don't get it near your eyes or mouth as it is made from chillies. I usually apply it and then wear compression gloves over it so I don't inadvertently wipe my eyes or similar.

    I am sure other people have different suggestions, but please remember we are all different and what helps one doesn't always do much for another.

    Please keep posting and let us know how you are getting on

    With very best wishes
