The way to tell if you’re still dissolving crystals would be to take a DECT scan… way overkill.
If these aren’t crystals, I guess it could be some kind of tendinitis caused by a gout attack. Either way, it should heal. Naproxen-type drugs should help either way.

I’ve taken a drug similar to naproxen at the same time as colchicine. I gather some people have done this a lot more than I did. If the pain/redness seems superficial, you could also use topical anti-inflammatories on top of colchicine. Run whatever drug combination you want to try by a doctor as side effects do not necessarily show up right away.
