Calling Dr. Hive - unexplained swollen finger?


Recommended Posts

I have no idea why my finger seems swollen. It's the middle segment of my left pointer finger. 


Last night before bed (I was laying in bed putting DD to sleep), it started to feel burning hot, with a perfect white circle where there was no blood in my finger. And slightly itchy. Like a mosquito bite, but there was no bump or bite mark. 


I took a children's benadryl and went to sleep. 


Now it still feels swollen, it feels like I have a bandage wrapped around my finger. I can't bend it all the way. 


It's mostly just annoying, ever so slightly painful, but at the same time, I have the possibly irrational worry that my whole hand will swell up and I'm done for.
