Finger swollen under knuckle after mosquito bite. Why would a mosquito bite make it swell. Will it go down soon?

In brief: Several possibility

You may have been bitten by something other than a mosquito, may have had an unusually severe reaction to the bite, or may have developed a secondary infection due to breaking the skin while scratching.
If the finger is red, warm , painful or gets worse would see a hand surgeon asap. Infections in fingers can extend upwards very quickly.
