Finger splint: It sounds like you have either a mallet finger, or trigger finger.

Little finger pinky is a little numb just came on what treatment should I do thanks?

Finger numbness: There are at least 2 broad categories of why your fingers wound be numb: blood flow or nerve related. It depends on which one it is for definite treatment.

If symptomatic treatment doesn't help then you should see a hematologist for a clotting evaluation. ...Read more
