    Joint pain in fingers

    I am 48 years. Recently I have noticed I get joint pains in my fingers after washing clothes with my fingers and I find it a little difficult to clench my hands. It disappears after some days. It does not happen when I wash plates. Can anyone please explain this? And what is the remedy?
