Non-healing cut on the knuckle, pain on pressing. How can I relive the pain?

I cut my knuckle pretty good a few weeks back and it has not healed. I know it is a tough area to heal as you are always moving it. I have just re injured the same knuckle from last year and it is mostly a cut where the skin has been ripped away due to friction. even from the injury last year there has been pain when i press on that area even though it was completely healed. is there any way that i can limit the pain when i press on that area?

My dear,
Chronic ulcer over knuckle takes time to heal as it is present over joint. So first of all wear a splint to immobilise the area and apply antibiotic cream and take anti inflammatory medication and wait for wound healing . If it doesn't heal by conservative treatment then you should go for excisional biopsy and skin grafting.
