Do I need medical treatment for a broken pinky finger?


Answer by  trippedwire (31)

It depends on the break. Depending on the severity you might be able to splint it and wrap tape around it yourself until it heals. However, it's difficult to tell unless you have it checked out by a medical professional. Go to the doctor just to be sure.

As long as you can handle the pain, you do not need medical treatment for a broken pinky. All a doctor will do is wrap the finger. If it does not feel better in week, or starts to hurt worse, you should see a doctor.

If it is still in alignment and the skin is not broken you can usually use a splint to keep it straight while it heals. If you have health insurance you should just go to urgent care to have them fix it.
