I've been given a plastic splint/cast to wear on my finger after a sporting accident and diagnosis of mallet finger. So far fine... problem is the finger's got so sore just after one day and the skin underneath is white and wrinkled and chafes in the splint.
I've been told that I need to leave the splint on for 6 weeks, keep my finger positioned so it's hyper-extended and in the meantime not let my hand get wet (fairly impossible), but it was so painful I had to unwrap it and take it out of the splint this morning. Is there something I can put on the skin before replacing the splint to help?
