Thanks for writing to us.
Pls get the X-ray of the part done to rule out harline fracture
of distal phalanx of the left mid finger.
Continue immobilisation with a Tubigrip plaster if positive for any fracture .Your taking Tylenol
or Anti-inflammatories is good enough.
Even though ice/immersion in cold
water is hurtful it is the First Aid
Measure of choice. Pls Do Not use any hot fomentation or any painkiller sprays/counter irritants for first 48 hours.
Always try to conserve the Part and restore the same and Amputation
is the very last resort only in cases of Crushed and Complicated Compound Fractures.
Get well soon.
