Is it possible to get fingernail infections?

For the past couple of weeks, my left ring finger has been getting more and more pain right next to the fingernail. I investigated, and it's not an ingrown, it just appears to be a sore spot. So I put numbing then antiseptic creams on it. Does anyone know what this is?

I've had them before.. it

I've had them before.. it could be an infection... most likely you'll just need to get the pus out and cover the spot with a bandage and some carbolic salve or another salve that will help take the infection away.
