Brief Answer:
Seems to be inflammatory in nature.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your query.

According to your description , pain over her right hand seems to be inflammatory in nature. It could be an acute attack of gout.
I advice her to give rest to the part affected, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin/combiflam 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination and rule out any infective cause.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Take care
