Tophi on allopurinol

Suffered from gout for over 40 years. Now 72.

I still get large tophi and skin breakages which result in tophi oozing out like toothpaste. Just had huge tophi on back of hand surgically removed.

Take allopurinol 300mg daily. Don’t drink alcohol and low intake of red meat.

Any suggestions on different medication to control tophi.

Very rarely suffer gout attack nowadays.
