Broken Finger


I jammed my finger at a softball practice and it is swollen and black and blue.
I have to play in a deciding game 2morrow and dont want to have it bother me.
What can I do? Should i heat it or ice it ? Any tips? Thanks


  1. My finger was broken while moving stove. Very swolen, black and blue the finger nail is the only blue. However, I just put a splint on it and let it go it has been 2.5 weeks and I am not sure how long to leave the splint on. The finger still hurts and tingles intermittently. Thanks for the advice. I do not have insurance to cover healthcare.Regards,Eyvonne Wells

  2. I jammed my finger or I think i jammed it but I don’t know what to do. It’s swelling like a big balloon. It kind of hurts to bend it but it is bendable. Help!
