Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A sprain is a condition when there is an injury to a ligament, one of the supporting structures of the limbs that functions to connect two or more bones in a joint. If due to a certain physical activity, such as exercising, lifting objects, falling, misplaced, running or accidents, then there is an injury or a tear in this ligament, various symptoms of sprains can occur, in the form of pain, swelling and redness.
In your case, the pinkie that is still swollen is likely because the area is damaged or injured more severely than the others so that it takes longer to heal. Regarding this, we suggest to consult a bone doctor first, to ensure the integrity of the limbs through a series of historical excavations, physical examinations and possibly X-ray support if deemed necessary. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, warm compresses to swollen areas, make sure your footwear are comfortable, may take over-the-counter painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the rules of use listed, limit activities that involve the feet for a while, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
