Other possibilities: Include ganglion of tendon sheath and mucous cyst- ganglion of joint. These fluid filled cysts can arise spontaneously, after trauma, or in association with arthritis of a nearby joint. Even though they are fluid filled, the fluid (mucin) can be very viscous, almost solid. Most resolve without treatment. If bothersome see a hand surgeon for an evaluation. ...Read more

Juice bumps?: Juice bumps that break open on their own or when scratched can be an infection, so a doctor should examine the rash to see if that's what's happening. Bumps that look like they might have some clear stuff inside, but don't break open easily, can be an allergic or sensitive skin problem called dyshidrosis (which is not an infection). The doctor will be able to tell the difference. ...Read more

?infection: Is there accompanying redness which would suggest an infection? If so, consult your physician for diagnosis and treatment. Acute arthritis of one of the finger joints is another possibility. It's best to have the finger examined in either case. ...Read more

Paronychia is the: term for an infection that develops along the edge of the fingernail or toenail. Try warm soaks for 15 minutes in a 50% solution of antibacterial soap in water. Do this three or four times a day. Paronychia is usually caused by common skin bacteria entering the skin around the nail that has been damaged by dishwashing, other irritants, or finger sucking. If it does not improve, see your doctor. ...Read more

Needs more time: First, its a good idea to have these injuries assessed by a hand surgeon to be sure there is not a more serious underlying injury. If this is a typical "volar plate" injury at the pip joint (middle knuckle of the finger), then pain can last many weeks but stiffness and swelling can last much longer. Focus on maintaining normal motion and the pain should fade with time provided you protect it. ...Read more
