What Causes Swollen Fingers?


Swollen fingers can be caused by overall fluid retention, such as during premenstrual syndrome or pregnancy. If just one finger is swollen, the possible causes include trauma, infection, or inflammatory conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, or systemic lupus erythmatosus.
