Hello Mayank. Considering that the only symptoms of the patient are pain and swelling of the thumb it might probably due to regular household work. The following should be sufficient: Tab Chymoral forte twice daily x 5 days ( 1/2 hr before food) Tab Ultracet semi twice daily x 5 days (after food) Tab Rantac 150 mg twice daily x 5 days (before food)
Next Steps
If there is fever, pus from thumb nail or any other symptoms please send us the picture of the thumb to add any further medication.
