Thank you for all the information & pictures.There can be a few possibilities.It can be due to paronychia or infection of skin & soft tissue around nail.This is often a bacterial infection.Sometimes a fungal infection can be there.But sudden onset is likely due to a bacteria.Bacteria can get entry through a skin break.I would suggest to get an examination by doctor.Oral antibiotic can be needed.Soaking in warm water 2 -3 times a day can be helpful.You can apply neosporin cream over thereI hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.Wish your early recovery.Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.Regards.
