La Toya Jackson's mystery hand ailment has been solved - the star's finger became inflamed after a nasty bug bite.
The former pop star visited a Los Angeles hospital last week (31Aug11) after the index finger on her right hand began to swell, causing her severe pain.
Jackson was referred to a specialist, and now the star has assured fans she's on the mend after the medic revealed the injury was most likely caused by an insect bite.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Thank you all for your thoughts! My finger is still on fire and extremely swollen, Dr. said an insect bite might have been the cause."
