Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Finger swelling and pain can be caused by several possibilities, including:
infection of the skin on the fingers (for example due to cantengan, finger pricked by certain animals) problems with bones (eg fractures / fractures of the finger bones) joint problems (eg gout arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint loss due to trauma / injury to fingers, etc.) To find out the right therapy for your mother, of course you need to know the exact cause. We recommend that you take your mother to see a doctor to do an evaluation first.
To help ease pain in your mother's finger for a while, you can give painkillers such as paracetamol, compress the fingers with cold compresses (may be soaked in ice water for ease), and do not move many fingers that are sore.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
