Swollen fingers and red lines on the edges

My fingers are swollen,numb and red line are on the edges of my fingers as well as my palm.
This has been hapenning for a month and now the red lined even shows up under my legs(sole) in the form of a circle and its painful.
I am using zyrtec and some anti iflamtory medicines but no change.
The swelling of the fingers keep shifting every day and they last for 1 to 2 days but there is no end.
For some time even area around my eyes were swollen.
Sometimes it is very painful mainly the edges and the center of the palm.
Nothing is showing up in the blood tests. Every thing is negative.
There is no joints pain to link to rhuematology.
Any help on what it might will be really helpful . I am 40 and i am a software professional.

Thank you.

Medicines Used:
zyrtec, naproxen 500mg,indomethacin 25mg

Re: Swollen fingers and red lines on the edges

Did any of this start when you starting taking one of the meds. or have you changed something in your diet? If blood tests came back ok it may be one of the meds. Have you seen a Dermatologist to see if they can figure it out?

Good luck...JJ...

This started before taking the medicines. I've been to a dermatologist but they just asked me to continue with zyrtec. I have been using zyrtec for more than two weeks now and there is no difference and in addition to that my fingers keep swelling much faster than before and also popping up in new areas.

Thank you.

Well then to me the Zyrtex can't be doing you much good. Maybe they need to switch you to something else. Hopefully they find out what is going on and can give you something for relief.

Good luck and keep us posted...JJ...
