Xray and specialist: Make sure to get an xray and find out which bone is fractured. Also see a hand or orthopedic specialist to see if it needs a splint or surgery. Hopefully it is a minor fracture and will heal with time. Its important to get it treated because finger fracture even if they heal can become very stiff. Therapy may be needed. Good luck!
