Swollen finger

I noticed today that Nami has a swollen finger and It does seem to be causing her just a little pain. She hasn't shed recently so I don't think it's anything related to that.

Any ideas on what caused it? And is there anything I need to do to help it get better?

Due to the light coloring on the finger, it's possibly just going through a shed. Shedding can cause their fingers/hands/arms to swell up temporarily until the old skin breaks free, then returns to normal. Something to keep an eye on, especially if you see other patches that are shedding.

An update, it seems to be worsening and there's red at the base and tip of her nail. I'm concerned its infected and The soonest I can get her to a vet is the 24th. Is there anything I should/can do to prevent it from getting any worse?

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
