Hi,

The swelling and redness of finger suggest the infection. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect treatment. I would recommend you to apply antibiotic cream and to take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs for few days to few weeks. Give rest to the finger by avoiding the movement.

Hope this helps.
