Swollen pinky

Hi there
I woke up this morning and my righthand's pinky was very swollen, so much, i could hardly bend it. Can't see any bite marks on it, although it is mosquito season!? What do you think it is - I'm a healthy person.
thanks

Dear Lesley
It may be a mozzi or spider bite - try Anthisan cream and if it is red, swollen and very sore, add Bactroban ointment. If the redness and swelling spreads, rather see your doctor.
