Many question though: When and how did this happen? Any injury?
Do you have any associated medical conditions like RA or SLE?
Do you do repeated work using Right hand?
Icing is good . Anti Inflammatory medicine like Advil/Aleve may give you temporary relief.
You may need to get examined in person if continues to get worse.
