Hypericum is a great natural remedy for nerve pain, or for pain in nerve-rich areas like fingertips. It’s a good remedy to keep on hand in your family medicine kit, because you want to give first aid remedies like this right away. You can get it ahead of time at any health food store in a 30c potency (strength) or online. Dissolve a couple of pellets in your mouth as one dose, repeat two to four times a day as needed.
You will probably also need Arnica if your finger is turning black and blue. Arnica is our best remedy for bruising and soft tissue damage.
Of course, use common sense and seek conventional medical help if you think you might have broken your finger. In this case, also take Symphytum, which speeds healing of fractures.
