As you are having the symptoms of inflammation around
and cuticle, so the possibilit
y of paronychia has to be ruled out. it
results from a breakdown of the protective barrier between the nail and the nail fold.
Treatment includes warm water soaks of the affected finger
3-4 times per day,oral antibiotics, topical antifungals and surgical intervention in more severe cases. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist.
I hope it
