What is the best treatment for a sore thumb?


Answer by  HawaiianGirl (6906)

The best treatment for a sore thumb would be to stop using it as much as possible. Try not to use the hurt thumb, and in time it should get better.

The best treatment for a sore thumb is to limit use of it. If you can, put a splint and bandage on it to keep it immobilized for one to two days.

If the thumb is sore at the base and it's been hurting for some time, you might have ligament damanage. Find a chiropractor who knows Graston therapy.

Ice could help if you jammed it in a door or stubbed it or dropped something heavy on it. Pain killers like aspirin or motrin can also be good. If your thumb is cut, neosporin can help disinfect the area. If you suspect it is sprained, fractured, broken or otherwise injured, please see a doctor.

If a person has a sore thumb the best way to treat it would be to rest it as much as possible. Applying heat or cold to it would help to relieve the soreness.

The first step is to give the thumb a literal rest, such as a break from texting and typing. If it continues to hurt or is red and swollen, there may be an injury. If rest does not reduce the pain or symptoms, see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
