my husband played bball got an injury to left hand fourth finger. Pain on the outside of knuckle. Have had jammed finger b4 but not now. Help please?

Fractures

Finger_pain
Can be minor but there are some that need surgery especially if the joint is not lined up, sprains are ligament injuries and the finger hours are prone to these too in a basketball scenario often these are partial but I'f it is a complete ligament tear trwatment is more complex an evaluation and an X-ray can help to differentiate these injuries if you need care a Gand surgeon is a good place

Swollen red knucle with extreme finger pain may have hit on corner of table weds night(remember saying ouch) 58 years old with osteopenia?

Get examined

Finger_pain
Could be a mallet finger, sattital band rupture (boxer's knuckle), or fracture. but hopefully nothing more than a contusion and/or sprain. can't be sure without an examination and possibly an X-ray. so see your primary care physician or a hand surgeon for a comprehensive evaluation.

How could I reduce sprained finger pain?

R.I.C.E.

Acetaminophen
Rest (limit your activities with the finger), Immobilization (with a splint to limit movement), Cold (packs of ice, 20 mins on, then 20 mins. off) and Elevation (above the heart, whenever possible to reduce swelling). If R.I.C.E. does not provide sufficient relief, or if you are in severe pain, then it's time to see you doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Over the counter Tylenol or Motrin can help.
