Swollen, tender joints with warm, red

doctor even if the pain from gout has stopped. The uric acid buildup that
caused your gout attack may still be irritating your joints and could
eventually cause serious damage. Your doctor can prescribe medicines that can
prevent and even reverse the uric acid buildup.
