Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, it could be an allergic effect of the mosquito bite. It could also due to:

  • Venous thrombosis
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Trauma
  • Raynaud’s disease
  • Buerger’s disease

However we need more information regarding on how you got your finger swollen and you will need to see a doctor to examine your finger and so that you could get treatment accordingly.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
