Whenever I move or even TYPE my finger hurts. The ring is cutting off my circulation, I can't get the swelling to come down...what's the worst that could happen to it?
Additional Details
OK I've tried all the suggestions you guys gave me - butter, ice, dental floss, etc. None of it has worked. My parents won't be home till later tonight - will my finger still be okay if I leave it like this through the night?

have to get it amputated

Google D
amputateeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee yummy.

haider j
they have to cut your finger off

Put lotion around the ring and your finger. I do it all the time...The worst is if you honestly cant get it off go to the hospital they may have to take it off with a machine that cuts a part of the band off and it losens it up.

it swells and cuts off circulation and your finger past the ring dies

to get off the ring just get cold icy water we are taling cold as you can get and submerge the hand until the swelling goes down and then remove ring

Honestly, you could lose the use of your finger if the ring cuts the circulation off for too long. If the finger in question is seriously swelling and impeding your ability to move it, go to the emergency room. You will have to let them cut the ring off before you lose that finger but remember the ring is replaceable and your finger might not be. Good luck!

go to your favorite gold shop,, and get for a ring of your finger in a size that never you swollen.

First u have to get the sweling to go down so u can get the ring off so put ice on it, if it doesn't go down go to a doc just in case!

Butter rub it on your finger it works.

ow wow!.. dont u just hate that!
i would suggest butter, oil or warm water.
to help ease it off.
worst case... u might have to get the ring cut.

if you put butter or dishsoap on your finger you may be able to slip it off but don't wait too long

Put your finger under a cold tap and put LOTS of soap on it and try, if not leave it under the tap for a while so the swelling goes down

Run it under really cold water for awhile for the swelling to go down, and put some Vaseline on it. Try to shimmy its way off of your finger. Cutting of the blood for a long period of time can damage your finger permanently.

hold your hand under cold water or hold ice on it. then put lotion/soap on you finger and it should come off.

Worse case scenario is that you cut it off.

A little less dramatic is to run your finger under cold water, or put a cold compact on it. Cold will reduce swelling...heat will NOT! You can also add some baby oil, or butter, or something with the cold to add lubrication.

Donna from Texas
Start by soaking your hand in ice water for as long as you can stand it. Try baby oil or vaseline to work the ring off. If you can't get it off and it's causing this much pain, head for the doctor and have it cut off!

Try to put ice on it to reduce swelling, or go to the emergency room

This is actually very serious. Put your hand in a bowl filled with cold water, ice and a lot of salt to try and get the swelling down. If you can't get the ring off and that finger is a completely different color than the other ones you need to go to the ER and have it cut off. If the finger is deprived of oxygen for too long it actually dies and would need to be amputated.

Ihad this happen the more you pull or panick the worse it will get. You neeed to try the usual eg. butter, neat washng up liquid, petroleum jelly etc if it is that stuck you need to get to A and Edept adn they will cut the ring off. the worst thing is that it will cut the blood circulation off. Dont panick thats the worst thing you can do. Seriously if its stuck fast get to the hospital they will cut it off its totally painless i've had it happen myself!!
