General Surgeon 's  Response
The condition is most probably a tenosynovitis. I would suggest you to consult your physician to ask for X Ray of the hand and an USG of the local part. If it doesn't show any localized collection then you have little less to worry and only antibiotics analgesics and rest should suffice.Though there could be other possible causes a thorough clinical exam is required before any conclusion. Hope you find my suggestion useful.
Thanking you
