Hand & Finger Infections

Hand and finger infections are relatively common. They can occur from animal/insect bites, or even minor trauma in those with medical conditions such as diabetes. This is caused from bacteria entering from the outside environment and causing infection in deeper tissues beneath the skin. Usually, it will look like a red, swollen, tender and warm area around the site of the infection – if this does not go away, or if the redness gets noticeably larger over 12 hours, it could be a medical emergency.
