Anyone good on fingers?

So about 6 weeks ago or more I slammed my finger shut in the car door. For some stupid reason I decided I was invaluable and went to work.

After sitting crying in pain for long time in the car.

Now my finger has itchy skin, a slight bump
and the skin at the site is sore and a bit raw/ it's been itchy on and off ever since.

Have I basically just fucked up my finger and need to suck it up?

I'm not sure how to get the right angle!

Doesn't look swollen. Maybe the itchy skin is unrelated to the thing 6 weeks ago? If you have full movement in your finger without pain, I'd guess they are not related.

I get weird rashes all the time (allergic to loads of stuff) so what you've described and the pic wouldn't make much of a blip on my radar if it were me.

Sounds like eczema. Try some H45 (hydrocortisone)

Excellent, will try that. Thank you!
