Pinky finger hurts at knuckle; how come?

Need more info. Not enough information here. Was there trauma or an injury to the finger? Did it start spontaneously? Is there any swelling or pain at rest? Which knuckle? Have you tried to treat it yet (i.e. Ibuprofen, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ice etc) and how did it respond?
