Take some pain meds. Keep it stable, put ice on it til your parents come home.

STOP typing, you're not helping it!

:) Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

do not bend it , take some aspirin or Tylenol for the pain and if it gets too bad call 911


s2pified
Be careful when you ice it.
(I gave myself frost bite when icing a broken pinky!)
Take an advil (or tylenol) to reduce the swelling and help with the pain.
Tape your pinky to your 4th finger. This will act as a splint to immobilize it.

Do you have any popsickle sticks or anything like an emory Board (finger nail file). If so take the Boards or sticks and hold this against the outside of your finger and wrap tape around them, you need to keep the finger straight and not move it. Also take a couple of Tylenol until your parents get home. Honestly not much a Doctor can do for it except put it in a finger Splint (which you can buy at any drug Store) and keep you on something for pain relief.


mimegamy
ICe it and tape it to the next finger to keep it immobile.


CowgirlUp
Either keep it on ice or in cold water or tape it and keep it above your heart so it doesn't throb as bad. I've done the same thing before, and I'm sorry to say, but there's not much you can do about it except tape it and let it go.


SAK
If your parents work, do you have their work phone numbers to call them? Otherwise, you could take tylenol or ibuprofen to help the pain, etc. Plus, the ice, 20 min on, 20 min off, repeat. If your parents can't come home from work right now (at least one of them), can you call them and get the okay to call 911 to have the medics look at it, and maybe transport you to the emergency room? Or, is there a local bus that could take you to hte dr. or emergency room? With your parents okay, of course. I hope this gets taken care of soon. Take care.


Shan
Call your parents or call the doctor or 911.

put ice on it and wait. call someone if possible. take tylenol or ibuprofen(not both, just one) and notify the doctor of that when you see him.

Tape it to your ring finger to use it like a splint and support it.

Take asprine or acetaminophen (tylenol) for pain.

Self-Care at Home
Make a splint (immobilize your finger even if that means putting a popsicle stick or pen next to it and wrapping something around the stick and your finger).


Apply ice to the injured finger as you head to an emergency department. Do not apply ice directly to your skin. Put a towel between the ice and your finger.

Also consider taking an anti-inflamatory like Advil..

call 911
In the mean time take a popsicle stic and place it between that finger and the next overthen put tape arround it for a splint


GailtheGuineaPg
Ice it and take the recommended dosage of Advil. Also, find a popsicle stick or nail filer. You may want to trim it, but tape it to your finger so that it has something to rest upon.


nicola s
just keep it on ice until your parents get home or maybe you can phone a relitave to take you to the hospital sorry cant be more help hopefully your parents want be long

put it in a sling. Like put a big popsicle stick on both sides to keep it straight. Use medical tape and that should keep it till you get to the doctors. Well thats what we did for my cat when he broke his leg.


irishjayhawk25
Definitely call your parents or even a friend's parent. Broken bones aren't to be messed with.

Hi,

wrap it and keep it still until you can get to a doctor. Keeping it cool is also a good idea as this will reduce the swelling. But you must get medical attention as soon as you can.

Take some Ibuprofen or aleve (not both). The ice is important, it will keep the swelling down. Try to keep it from moving to much and try to reach your parents and let them know.

use popsicle sticks or something to put it in a splint. It will stop you from bending it.

..rae..♥
Do you have a phone you can use? If you can't get to the doctor, call them. They'll tell you what to do until you can get some help.


FaZizzle
Take some Advil, put some ice on it, and stay calm.

Pinkies are REALLY hard for a doctor to put a cast on. Chances are he would splint it (tape it to your ring finger) for the time being.

first - calm down. It's not an emergency. If you're not bleeding, you'll probably live, and be able to play the piano as well as you could before.

Second - DON'T PUT ICE DIRECTLY ON IT. You don't want to add frostbite to the list of injuries on your hand.

Put the ice in a plastic bag, and wrap the bag in a dish towel. Then hold that against your finger. Put it on for 10-15 minutes, and leave it off for 10-15 minutes.

Third - if it's obviously broken or out of joint - ie, it has a funny bend to the side somewhere, or maybe it's bent backwards in the middle - splint it with something to keep it protected from further injury. You can put a couple of popcycle sticks in either side of it, and wrap it with gauze. You can wrap it with some printer paper or newspaper folded up to about the length of your finger. Or you can just wrap it with gauze or an ace bandage a couple of times, and then wrap the gauze around the next finger. This will help keep it from being bent, and being injured more.

4th - go find a doctor, readycare clinic, or (last choice) the emergency room of a hospital. The last one will cost you the most, and you'll potentially tie up valuable space that a real emergency could need and use.
