there is something called strapping practised by our old grand father whenever there is I hurt myself, it used to really work well. He used to tie my hurt finger with the next normal finger for few days. He asked me never to fold my fingers. I think you try that too. But I am not sure if requires something important to be seen by a doctor and take advice. I hope this helps......
