Door slammed on the hand knuckles. Having bulge, throbbing pain in the little finger. Solution?

I was working on my grandmothers ranch when as I was getting out of the truck the wind caught the door and slammed it in my hand . Right behind my knuckles, there s a protruding bruise between the knuckles for my index and middle finger . But my pinky finger hurts between my first joint all the way to the knuckle, I try not to bend it but forget sometimes. I can move the rest of my fingers just fine without pain, there s only pain in my pinky fingers, and some slight throbbing... It has been about half an hour since my hand was slammed in the door.

Thanks for your query.
From description it seems to be soft tissue injury .
You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury.
I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.Beside icing and elevating it, you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting weight and rest well.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
