Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HealthcareMagic.

At this point, you should apply ice, rest, take Ibuprofen and put an elastic bandage. If there is deformity or you can't move your fingers properly then you should see a doctor and do X-rays since in this case, a fracture may have occurred.

If there is significant pain, limited movements or increasing swelling, you should also do X-rays and immobilization with cast may be required.

Wish you good health.
Regards.
