Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified beforehand, what is the current condition of your little finger pinched by a fan? Are there any injuries? Does it feel pain, swelling, numbness, redness, blueness, or any other complaints?
Pinched on the fan can cause a mild or dangerous impact on your finger. If the pins you experience are not too tight and temporary, often this condition is not dangerous. You may experience short-term pain, redness and swelling in your fingers. But often, if there is no serious tissue damage, these signs of inflammation will subside in a short amount of time, by first resting a finger pinched from excessive activity, compressing a finger previously clamped with warm water or ice cubes, and also elevating the finger so that the swelling is reduced. In order for the pain to subside, you can also apply over-the-counter pain relievers to the finger.
However, in some cases, fingers pinched on the fan can be seriously injured, with significant breadth and depth. If it's like this, not only pain, redness, and swelling, you can also experience a lot of bleeding. You can also have difficulty moving your fingers and can't feel the change in sensation properly (being tingling or numb). Furthermore, if the wound is not treated properly, secondary infections can also occur which make the wound become runny, festering, and give off an unpleasant odor. It is not impossible, when pinched, there is also a segment of your finger that is broken or cracked due to being rubbed by the fan blades that are fast. In the case of pinched fingers like this, you should not give drugs carelessly. Press the injured finger with clean gauze so the bleeding stops. Do not slough or massage carelessly injured fingers so that no more severe tissue damage occurs. While doing the steps above, visit your doctor or surgeon immediately for further treatment.
Unfortunately, you don't clearly explain what your finger is currently like. Therefore, it is difficult for us to identify what the best management is for overcoming it. Therefore, to be more objective, you should check yourself directly to the doctor at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
