In brief: Anti-inflammatory

Trigger finger or thumb is an irritation of the tendon.
Usually rest and an anti-inflammatory like advil or Aleve (naproxen) will help. If symptoms persist consult your doctor.

In brief: NSAIDs

If you can tolerate non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (nsaids), symptoms can be improved with occasional use.
Ibuprofen or Naproxen are commonly available over-the-counter medications that can be very helpful when symptoms flare.
