Elevate your hand, wrap it with ace and wrap fingers with Coban if needed. Don't use ice or NSAID's. Apply cream or jell with Arnica in it.

The nerves are like wires and can carry signals in both directions. Your bruise is likely close to a nerve and it gets pushed on when you push on the bruise. ...Read more
