This can happen to everyone – once your favourite ring suddenly becomes a little and squeezes the finger so that even a glance is enough to understand: so easy not to remove it.
Do not rush to despair and mentally say goodbye to expensive decoration! Here are a few life hacks that will help remove the ring from the swollen finger.
WHY FINGERS ARE SWOLLEN
Before we tell you how to remove the ring from your finger, let’s list the reasons why fingers turn into “sausages.”
- A large amount of liquid drunk
- During pregnancy
- Uncontrolled eating of salty food
- Weight gain
- Kidney disease
- Injury or cut
Also, the ring can get stuck on your finger due to the wrong side of the decoration. Put on a small product with a squeak, but you can. But removing it is a more difficult task. But if the ring is stuck, you don’t have to pull and yank it while trying to take it off. The finger will swell even more, and because of sudden movements, you can earn a dislocation.
HOW TO REMOVE THE RING FROM THE SWOLLEN FINGER
Method No.1: Fabric and sunflower oil
Take a small piece of cloth and sunflower oil (can be replaced with liquid soap, oily ointment, shampoo). You need to oil your finger well if you can and under the ring. In the other hand, take a flap of fabric and remove the decoration from his hand, scrolling clockwise.
Method No.2: Needle and thread
The thread can be any (up to the dental), but it is better to take a silk long 75 cm for less painful sensations. The needle should be carefully, not scratching the skin, to strip the thread’s edge through the ring. The second edge is tightly winded on the finger: from the product to the phalanx’s end. To make the ring easily slipped off your finger, you need to pull the edge of the thread passed over the ring. The thread-drawn finger will be reduced, and the ring is easily removed from the finger.
Method No.3: Water
You can remove the swelling under a stream of cold water. You need to hold your hand underwater for a couple of minutes, and then raise it over your head. Blood will dry up from the hand, and the swollen finger will become thinner. Now you can try to pull the ring off.
Another option: dissolve salt in cool water and dip in the liquid hand for five minutes.
Method 4: Ice
The previous tip may not work if the metal under the influence of cold water narrows with the finger. To prevent this from happening, instead of water, it is better to use a piece of ice. They need to hold on to the swollen finger, but not to touch the rings.
Method 5: Helping a Friend
It happens that to remove the ring interfere with the skin folds on the joint. To remove the decoration, ask someone to pull the folds down, and slowly scroll through the ring, gradually pushing it through the joint.
WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR
The blue finger is an excuse to sound the alarm and turn to specialists. Decoration to save you is unlikely to be possible, but do not regret, even if this diamond ring – the main thing to keep healthy. Call the hospital or the NHS. The product will be cut quickly without harming the fingers. But you don’t need to try to cut the ring yourself. You may be very angry, which will make the situation worse.
