Its quite possible that you might have developed an infection of you hand and may need a course of antibiotics to resolve it. It is important that you see a dcotor immediately as delaying may cause spread of the infection. There are other causes also which may cause this and it s better if you see a doctor who can examine and do some tests and start appropriate treatment.
