Skin turning black on hand swelling and pain?

Go to the ED now. A doctor needs to evaluate for infection or necrotizing fasciitis. Perhaps it's just a bruise, but that is not something i can tell from your description.
Black skin. Not a good sign, call your doctor immediately, there is either an infection or a circulation problem. Don't sit on it!
