Give it time: The soft tissue of your fingers got injured from the trauma. It will heal with time. The bumps are from bleeding deep in the tissue and inflammation. You may take an over the counter pain medication like acetaminophen, if you need it.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
