Ice and pressure

Symptomatic treatment would be ice to the area and compression wrapping with an ace bandage. More importantly, however, is why is this happening to you? Is this do to an injury or to taking blood thinners or do to an underlying blood clotting problem? If symptomatic treatment doesn't help then you should see a hematologist for a clotting evaluation.

Is there a treatment for the cut on my finger?

Keep it clean

Cuts
If you can see yellow fat tissue, or the bleeding won't stop, you probably need stitches. if there is no fat exposed you probably can treat the cut by washing it with soap and water then drying it and applying bacitracin.

If pus then drain

Paronychia
If it is a cellulitis - the area is red and swollen but there is no collection of pus, then antibiotics alone may work, but if there is a collection of pus - abcess, felon, or paronychia, then surgical drainage is necessary
