My finger swelling since 6 month?

Look into cause

Finger_swelling
If this is one sided, I would seriously recommend evaluation for possible mechanical lymphatico-venous obstruction. If bilateral there may be a variety of other causes. Start with your internist.

What are methods used to treat finger swelling?

Passive stretch

Open-uri20121203-13610-1d490pb
Finger swelling is generally associated with increased fluid of the joints or tendons. By stretching the fingers slightly beyond their normal range of motion the tendons get stretched and the ligaments of the joints give a little. This produces relief

Many ways

It depends on the cause... is it related to retaining fluid through out the body? An injury? Arthritis? Even some rheumatologic conditions can cause chronic finger swelling. Your primary care doctor can help sort these out and decide if you should see a hand surgeon. Good luck!
