Swollen area between knuckle and finger, mild pain on applying pressure. Will ice help?
I hit my chair when I was a little mad, and the area between my middle knuckle and ring finger knuckle is swollen. However there isn t too much pain and I an move my fingers in all their normal directions. the pain when i put direct pressure on it isnt too intense. Is this something that will go away with ice and some care?
Yes, this should go away with application of ice and proper care. You have to keep in mind that further trauma is not advised in the region: therefore do not put pressure over the area to check if you have pain or not. Also, take analgesics as this would reduce the inflammation associated with the swelling and hasten recovery. The pain usually takes around 3-5 days to resolve but some degree of swelling might remain which would undergo spontaneous resolution.
hi there, yes what you have got is just a bruise and it will subside with some anti-inflammatory, ice pack and keeping the limb in elevated condition. You need to be care ful and not harm yourself when you are mad. Take care.
