Swollen Cut on Finger

I cut my pinky finger 2 weeks ago and it was pretty deep. I wnt to the ER and had to get it cleaned and had 5 stitches. I was not told to take any antibiotics.

The cut was diagonal from the middle of my pinky finger until the 1st from the tip knuckle.

Now for about 2 weeks the cut has been swollen, not red and does not look infected. I just thoght it was the slanted cut healing.

I also like to mention that since I cut my hand I lost all feeling in the region of the cut to the tip of the finger only on the side of the cut.

Feeling has been coming back slowly.

I also took the stitches out myself, I just cant afford the $35 to go back to the hospital.

Now since the cut is swolen, not red, doeant hurt and has no pus coming out of it.

Should I still go see the doctor, and can diagonal cuts get swolen because they would heal differently that regular cuts.

I really cant afford to go back and it doeant look infected.

Id like to mention that my body has a reddish complexion and all my cuts and scars have always been redish. My whole body is pretty much a lighter pink to white when im hot or really cold.
