I have been playing a lot of golf this year and I have developed trigger finger in my pinky finger. Are there any OTC treatments that will help?

In brief: Anti-inflammatories

Any anti-inflammatory( aleve, (naproxen) advil) may help with your trigger finger.
If treating with anti-inflammatories is not helpful then see your physician as an injection with a steroid will usually help.

In brief: Some

Resting the finger may be enough to resolve the problem. Splinting to keep your finger in a neutral, resting position may help.
Nsaids or Acetaminophen can be used to relieve the pain. Steroid injections can cure if done early enough. Surgery has a high success rate.
