It is not timew for a home remedy. If someone thinks they have a finger infection there are no "harmless" infections someone with intense pain in their finger with redness and swelliing should seek medical attention Other issues can include:
infection, gout, trauma or circulation problems can give severe finger pain.
Infection. Yes a small "hangnail" can get infected but a paronychia, an infection of the space adjacent to the nail can exists. A felon, an abcess in the pulp or the beginings of infectious flexor tenosynovitis can show up this way too.
Gout. Can appear as a reddened hot area that is very painful. Fgouty deposits in the soft tissue of the finger or around the joints can mimick infection.
Trauma. A puncture wound, a fracture, a sprain, a foreign body (sliver, splinter) can appear this way Circulation issues. Loss of circulation, longstanding issues regarding circulation, cold induced spasm of blood vessels can give a painful finger but less typically a red-hot one.
The list can go on
There are enough issues here that can worsen quickly

Sounds like Raynauds: It sounds like you may have a reaction to cold called Raynauds phenomenon. It describe it to people as an "allergy" to cold. Your body is put into that environment and does not react to it the way it should. It is like a broken thermostat. My advice to you is seek a warm climate and stay out of the cold; and that includes the freezer section in the store. ...Read more

I would not "watch it for a couple of days before seeing the doctor". You are dealing with cellulitis (skin infection caused by bacteria). You need antibiotic treatment right away. The reason is that cellulitis can quickly lead to abscesses, gangrene, and thrombophlebitis (inflammation of superficial veins) and in some cases it can even lead to an infection in your bloodstream (sepsis) which can be life threatening.
Some things you can do at home if you are unable to see your doctor right away are vitamin supplements(mainly c, e, and zinc), herb therapy(echinacea, thyme), and even acupuncture.
Lastly ice is not a good idea, but a cool towel may be helpful. Avoid heat.
Good luck. ...Read more
