Detailed Answer:
Hello,
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.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
