In brief: Depends

Consult with the doctor who aspirated it because there is no one way to care for it.
The options are generally a bandaid, pressure dressing, or splint. But some physicians encourage deep massage and followup times may vary as well as need for further workup depending on symptoms and possible associated issues. Best of luck.
