Did it appear out of the blue, or did it grow over (a certain period of) time?
Did you hurt your pinky before and is this the result?

Sounds like a blister, I got one on my pinky from touching a pan right out of the 400* F.

Could be a lot of things. What have you done with your hands over the past few days? Could it be a small thorn or splinter that got a bit infected. It could be a spider bite. It could be a cyst or even a pimple or an in-grown hair. If it bothers you and you can’t figure it out, go to a doctor. If you just want to get rid of it, try applying hot compresses and use tribiotic ointment.

That sounds kind of like a wart.

Look up warts online and see if it looks like your bump.
