In brief: Elevation, motion
Elevation of your hand above heart level is key, along with range of motion which acts like a pump to remove swelling.
An edema glove from a pharmacy or therapist will help.

In brief: Ice and Elevation
In general, ice and elevation can be helpful to address any acute swelling.
Over the counter anti-inflammatories such as alleve and Motrin can be helpful. However, if the swelling is chronic, then you should be seen by your physician.
