Splint or buddy tape: Try splinting your injured finger or even buddy taping it. Then wrap it up so don't poke yourself while asleep. I have no connection to Walgreens but their ad popped up when I searched: http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/walgreens-small-finger-splint/ID=prod3460871-product. You could also use popsicle sticks.
