Really Hot Index Finger

I have what feels like a burn on my left hand, on the right side of my index finger. It's sensitive to hot and is also hot to the touch.
First Degree Burn: As you described this skin injury I would say you have a first degree burn. You can take an over the counter pain reliever by mouth to help with pain i.e. Tylenol. Burns are classified first to fourth degree. Do you remember cooking or being around a hot object? If not you may have another diagnosis. You can expect the burn to go away in 24 hours.
I picked up a very hot piece of metal today with my thumb and index finger, blisters and severe pain. Nothing helps but cold water. It's 2am. Help!
Chill: Keep chilling the burns, but take breaks to allow the skin to begin to heat up before continuing to chill. If you keep this up you may escape with little or no damage. Often it takes hours. The reason you take breaks it to avoid injury from the cold. See doctor if necessary.

It's unusual to have: The tip of a finger to have a cold sensation without affecting the other fingers or hand. If it persists or worsens, get checked for spasm of the blood vessel (raynaud's), thyroid disease etc. Soaking it in warm water, quitting smoking (if u do) etc may help.

Fasciculations...: Are usually harmless twitches which can occur in any skeletal muscle in the body.
