    1. Ice your finger. Wrap an ice pack or cold compress in a paper towel and place it on the injured finger. Keep the ice on it for 10-minute intervals with 20-minute breaks for the first few hours after you smash your finger. Ice helps to minimize swelling, bleeding, and pain. Be careful not to apply to much weight or pressure with the ice. You may just place your finger on top of the wrapped ice pack or compress. Do not put ice directly on skin or keep the ice on for longer than 15-minute intervals. This may cause frostbite or further inflammation.
    2. Elevate your hand above your heart. Hold your injured finger up in an elevated position above the level of your heart. Do this continuously to limit pressure. If you keep your hand down at your side, blood will rush to the injury, increasing the swelling and uncomfortable throbbing pain.
    3. Take an over-the-counter painkiller if the pain is severe. To further relieve pain and reduce inflammation, take an oral anti-inflammatory or pain killer such as ibuprofen (Advil), Tylenol, Motrin, or Aspirin.
    4. Clean the wound with mild soap and water. If the injury resulted in an open wound, clean it as soon as possible. You can clean the wound by rinsing with running tap water and washing around the wound with soap. If there is any dirt or debris in the wound, remove it with tweezers cleaned with alcohol.
