Suggest Remedy For Swelling In Finger

I feel on my hand while doing trampoline. After sometime I started feeling pain in my right thumb where thumb meets rest of hand & in middle joint of thumb. The thumb has swollen but I feel pain when I move the thumb. Although the pain has decreased since yesterday. The color of thumb has not changed & there are no rashes.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have swelling in finger. Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like allergy , carpel tunnel syndrome , fracture or joint dislocation . I would suggest you to apply ice pack for first 48 hours and thenapply warm compresses , your can also keep your finger in hot water tub and take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain . Consult orthopedic surgeon for proper examination if the condition doesn't get well . Doctor may give splint and fix it , recommend surgery in severe damage , physical therapy and prescribe muscle relaxant and anti inflammatory .

Hope your concern has been resolved.
