Home cure for pinched fingers

The best remedy for this problem is to rest your fingers as much as you can. Try not to use them at all. If this means wrapping them in bandages and wearing a sling, do that too. Make cold packs with ice wrapped in a cloth and apply to bring down the swelling. This will also help to lighten the color. Apply a mashed pulp of papaya and pineapple to your fingers and leave it on for about an hour. Wash this off with plain water. This will help heal. You must avoid painkillers, which are known to retard the healing process. You can soak a cotton ball in witch hazel and rub it on the entire affected area. This will draw out the pain and help heal the broken capillaries on the surface of your skin. The juice of a whole grated potato applied on your fingers will be an excellent remedy to heal them and prevent discoloration. Applying castor oil gently on the wound will help bring down the swelling. Arnica oil is a very effective measure to soothe discolored skin due to physical injuries. If you cannot find the oil, take the pills that are available orally.
