Gouty Tophi On Right Lower Limb is the first of four photographs from the Widespread Painless Tophi Report.
The report highlights the dangers of simply focusing on pain relief for gout management. Tophi do not usually hurt. This form of painless gout means your right foot might be being destroyed slowly by gouty tophi. If left too long, your right foot will start to crumble causing osteoarthritis.
Don’t risk it – get uric acid controlled to safe levels.
