I have recently cut my middle finger at work and after that had alot of pain and swelling, Dr. said to take antibiotics that I already have for acne. Went to Dr. the next day and the swelling had subsided, he said maybe it was a staph infection continue antibiotics. No tests were performed just a visual exam. 1 week later the same problem with the finger pain and swelling I could not bend my finger. I have been wrapping my hand with an ace bandage because it hurts so much. This is happening at night after work. (working in a grocery store) I am not left handed yet it is on my left hand. I have had no other injuries to my hand except for the cut which has since healed. I am 18 years old. I can't keep going to the Dr. if he does not know what is wrong I can not afford it, but I am hoping someone might have an idea what could be wrong. This pain is terrible.:(
