In brief: Injection, colchicin

Colchicine is a specific anti-inflammatory drug that can help in attacks of gout and pseudogout.
Nsaids can also help. Depending on severity, aspiration of fluid from the joint and injection of a steroid can provide fairly quick relief.

In brief: NSAID, etc

The acute episodes are treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or colchicine.
Chronic control may be with hydroxychloroquin.
