Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and swelling on the finger can be due to an injury, a tendon inflammation or an infection in the area. There can be an infected cyst also present in the area. Proper cause can be detected only after a direct examination. Do consult an orthopedician and get the necessary medicines prescribed for improvement.
I hope this answers your query.
