I have a swolen finger, which i do get sometimes, i have been to my doctors 3 times as my toes also get this and he just said they are chillblanes and to try to keep the fingers and toes warm and not to warm them quickly if they do get cold.   

I have been wearing gloves at work all winter but over the past 4 days my middle finger has swolen right up.  I can barely bend the finger andit feels hot to touch.  I don't want to ice it as it may make it worse if it is chillblanes.
