I haven't experienced any finger ulcers but I sure hope you can protect that finger. There's always a chance it may be an ulcer and I hope the pain subsides for you.... and soon.

Like Susie I haven't had this experience either, but we do have a list of creams and things you can do for ulcers. Hopefully you find something that works for you. I would definite go see your rheumatologist because if it is indeed the first of an ulcer you might need to start a treatment to prevent futures one. With the cold weather approaching you need to be looking at prevention.
I hope the pain goes away very soon and that the sore subsides without advancing further. Let us know how you are doing.
