Thank you

Since there is no swelling now, and you are using your hands, fracture is unlikely.

It is likely that this is just strain of the muscles or ligaments of the finger

You can take some home steps for this:

Soak in warm salt water for 15 minutes at a time several times during the day

Over the coutner pain killers like Naproxen whenever there is pain

Gentle stretching exercises of the finger

Keep the hand elevated at night - place your hand on a pillow

Com[ression bandage: you can wrap your finger with a compression bandage available in pharmacies or use a finger support available in pharmacies.

These steps will help it to heal faster, but if the pain persists show to a doctor.
