How to reduce swelling from ring finger WITHOUT removing the ring?Answer
the ring isn't really the problem, i don't think and i know how to get it off if it is. but i woke up this morning, my ring fingers swollen. i took the ring off, then used ice to reduce swelling. it got better, so i put the ring back on, and could get it off then back on. but i took t a shower and the ring would not go back on. so i used ice again, got it on, but i don't want to take it off again, and again unless i absolutely have to. i just want the swelling to go down. help?

Start drinking LOTS of plain water (add fresh squeezed lemon if you have it) to flush the salt from your system--8 oz every half-hour, AT LEAST. This is the only way to get rid of the excess fluid--so start now!
