4 doctors weighed in:

Could I have an infection in the tip finger even if there's nothing wrong with my nail? The nail's healthy and no pain around it, just on the pad.

In brief: Finger tenderness

You may have inadvertently embedded something in the tip of the finger, may have touched somebody with Herpes simplex virus infection, or may be developing an infection.
Watch this carefully and if it gets worse go see a doctor. Best wishes.
