Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hi,

Is there any injury? If there is no injury than get your uric acid checked and also get your X-ray done,apply ice pack, apply diclofenac gel, take over the counter painkillers. Also, do a strapping of affected finger with adjacent one.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Jaideep Gaver, Orthopedic Surgeon
