Burn on!

I burned my knuckle on my toaster oven about a month ago and it was just a small burn that didn't hurt too bad so I ran it under cold water and that was that. About a week later, the area around my burn got extremely red and I was barely able to move my forefinger. So I drenched it in hydrogen peroxide and it got a lot better and seemed to be fine.
My problem now is my forefinger seems to be a lot weaker and it's a lot harder to type and write. It also twitches a lot throughout the day, especially if I raise it. Does anyone know what this could be? Do I have nerve damage? My knuckle is still a little red and is scarred. Thank you for your help!!!
