Tophi Removal

have had tophi in the knuckle of a finger for several years but was able to somewhat control it with DMSO. now it has appeared on other parts of the finger and in the palm of the same hand.

I’m not sure if the DMSO has dissolved and redistributed the original tophi or these are new outbreaks. in any event, the tophi in the knuckle is beginning to cause me pain.

is it time for surgery or can this small inflammation be dealt with in some less invasive manner? the knuckle bulge is about 1/4″ above normal.

thanks
