Finger is red and swollen.

Edited , 3 users are following.

Its been about 1-2 month since I fell from motorcycle on my right hand finger.

I went to doctor about few weeks ago and I did X- Ray to my finger .

the doctor said that there is no nothing and it will pass.

I wonder if any one know what is going on with my finger. It's red , swollen and I cant straighten it and if I'm pressing on the joint it is very painful.

File attached.

Thanks in advance .imageimageimageimageimageimage

    You may have an infection in that joint. You need to go back to the doctor. Something is wrong and needs sorting . The Xray may have appeared totally OK at the time but there may have been a tiny injury to the joint that could not be seen. Dont ignore this.. untreated bone infections can lead to other problems.

    Keep massaging your finger and the swelling will down over time.
