Had itchy red swollen end of little finger, swelling gone now and left lots of red dots under skin that don't fade when pressed down on. Thank you?
Woke with swollen finger, pain in joint. Symptom has been present for slmost 2 weeks. Swelling has gone down mostly but still persists.
Joint swelling: Need to be evaluated with a good clinical exam and appropriate investigations. I presume there was no injury as none is mentioned.
Swollen fingers: CAN BE DUE TO trauma, infection, arthritis, inflammation, nerve issues, tumor, or excess retained fluid due to systemic problems. IN general ice and elevation and gentle motion help but if there is prolonged swelling, pain, redness, change in sensation, loss of circulation see someone soon. There are so many things I can list, that even if just swelling and chronic get evaluatedSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Finger swelling can persist for months depending on the type and severity of the injury. Once the injury (fracture, tendon laceration, etc.) is repaired and fully healed, be sure to use your hands/fingers as much as you can tolerate and a little beyond that. Lack of use will cause the swelling to persist even longer.See 1 more doctor answer
String: Place string or heavy thread under the ring than wrap the string around the finger proximal to distal as tight as possible. Then grab the proximal end of the string and forcefully unwrap the string. Because the string is under the ring it will push the ring toward the end of the finger and therefore remove the ring.
Infection perhaps: This could be an infection. It should be looked at by a physician. You may need antibiotics.

Need specifics: I assume it is drained because of an infection or abscess. If that is the case, it should speed the recovery. Your question needs to be more specific to generate a more accurate answer.
See a doctor: Basketball injuries to the middle knuckle include simple ligament sprains, central slip (tendon-boutonneire) rupture and fracture dislocation. Unfortunately, even severe injuries could look innocuous. I personally feel it is important to have these injuries evaluated in order to rule out a more sinister injury. It could mean the difference between 3 weeks of buddy taping and surgery...See 1 more doctor answer
