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 because 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

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
it is not time for a home remedy for anyone with these issues. ...Read more

Nope: No connection.Get a more detailed answer ›
Left hand middle finger tight with stiffness. Can't bend it. Swollen @ the joint & palm. No pain, just uncomfortable.
No injury?: Assuming you haven't injured that finger somehow (sometimes it is hard to remember...might have seemed like nothing at the time)... I'm thinking things that aren't exactly "serious", but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt! Possibly tendinitis in that finger, or a bit of arthritis in the joint. Try using an ice pack, and reducing movement, maybe w/ a splint. If it continues, I would get an x-ray. ...Read more
