What do you do?: You haven't mentioned what kind of work you do, if you deal with chemicals or latex could be related as it only happens in the work environment, please tell us what kind of work you do? Thanks,

i think you should have it checked out. swelling in the middle finger concerns me…i will throw out psoriatic arthritis as possibility in the differential based on the swelling and fact you may be describing psoriatic plaques….but thats just for discussion purposes you would need to be examined.
