Small bump just above the knuckle, swollen fingers and part of hand with pain. What is this ?

My husband s finger had a small bump just above the knuckle. During the day the area and finger became swollen and part of the hand . It was like a big pimple came out and was very sore with a lot of pain. It broke eventually but didn t seem to have a lot come out of it. A bump remains and still sore with the skin peeled around it. Now one is forming on the other hand. He is in a remote camp area. What could this be and what can he do for it

Hi, Rose.
Thanks for query.
It seems that he might be having some infection and an abscess is formed.
As this has happened on another hand indicates his work might be having crawling type as we find in military people.
Go for antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicine and proper dressing with antibiotic cream.
Ok and bye.
