In brief: Painful injury

Initially apply ice .
A children ibuprofen is better in such conditions as it is anti inflammatory . Support with a wrap or bandage

If there is no broken bone and or broken skin,i.e. Open wound children's tylenol/Ibuprofen is good. Apply ice. If there is open wound clean with water and Saline. Cover with sterile dressing. If Broken finger support with Small wooden Ice cream spoon and wrap. Follow up with MD the next day.

In brief: Yes; pain relief

Tyelenol or Ibuprofen are appropriate for pain relief; if the finger injury is closed, ie not bleeding, may apply ice to area to help ache.
If possibility of broken bone/finger, take to urgent care or er.
