7. Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is made from magnesium sulfate, a naturally occurring mineral that helps reduce swelling and pain.

Inflammation causes a depletion of magnesium, so when the affected part of the body is soaked in Epsom salt, the body absorbs the magnesium and combats the inflammation.

  1. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt in a big bowl of hot water.
  2. Stir thoroughly.
  3. Dip the affected fingers in it for 10 to 15 minutes. Or, you can soak a small towel in it
  4. Repeat once or twice daily for a few days.

8. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar also provides relief from the discomforts of swollen fingers. Its high potassium content helps reduce fluid retention, a common cause of swelling.

In fact, one of the serious symptoms of potassium deficiency is edema.

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar helps maintain the right pH balance in the body and also helps prevent high uric acid levels in the body.

  • Soak a small towel in a mixture of equal amounts of warm water and raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Wring out the excess water and wrap the affected finger with this towel for 10 minutes. Repeat this process a few times a day.
  • Also, add 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. Add some raw honey and drink it twice daily.

  1. Swollen fingers? I have a swollen index finger which has caused me great pain since January 2016 with a small break in between.
    I have used Concentrated Montmorency Cherry Juice which has reduced some of the swelling (caused by gout) and an additional supplement of Celery Seed capsules. At one point, my finger was so large, it was more than twice its normal size. I could not even bear anything touching it. It has now improved but the swelling will never go

  2. i like how u explain the remedies,in that i am saying u are making things more cheap than to go and buy expensive creams.bye

  3. I had a cortisone shot for trigger finger five months ago. This was my 3rd shot over a 2 year period. My middle finger swelled up and became numb the following day. During the past 5 months I had numerous visits with a hand surgeon. I had X-rays and a MRI which did not show anything. He decided on surgery, which was done a week ago. My finger has swollen more and has become very numb and painful to the touch. My stitches come out in a week. I don’t feel that the surgery is going to help.

  4. I smashed/pinched 3 of my fingertips in the sliding garage door last night. One nail is very damaged, with small amounts of bleeding and the nail is loose. The other two the nails are bruised, but mainly the fingertips are very swollen. Which of these therapies would you recommend, especially with broken skin on one of the fingers/nails? They don’t really hurt but the swelling in 2 of them is pretty bad.
