Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon 's  Response
It seems that you have a tenosynovitis in your hand which is an inflammation of the synovial sheaths or the coverings of the tendons which lie within your palm. This gets better with splintage as the affected tendon's motion is restricted but with motion pain would be incited. I suggest that you better consult a hand surgeon for further management and also to exclude infection within the sheaths of the fingers since the overlying skin is pink.
