In brief: Motion and elevation
If the cause has been treated and controlled, motion and elevation is all that is needed.
But it mat still take a long time to clear up.

In brief: Ice
Ice and elevation of the finger are ways to reduce finger swelling.
Make sure the finger is not infected if it is an antibiotic is likely required.
