I caught my finger (near cuticle) on a little bit if a screw that was sticking out of my work trolley. It bled a little but not a lot so I thought no more a bout it. Now a couple if days later I have a painful lump next to my fingernail. It looks like a thick skinned blister. What is it please?
Something similar happened to my daughter.... turned out there was a sliver of something in that blister. When it finally popped, she had a thorn - in your case it could be a sliver of metal or dirt or oil - Your finger could be infected. Try soaking it in warm salty water and use an antibiotic cream and a bandaid on it. If it gets worse, see a doctor.
