Thanks for all the replies. What I ended up doing was...
First putting my hand in ice cold water (reason: some kind of diffusion property), and stretching the fingers.
Secondly before hitting the sheets I applied this stuff to the area
In the morning applied the stuff again and just exercised the fingers throughout the day. After a week the majority of the swelling subsided, with
swelling visible only within the webs of the knuckles. Another week passed and that also subsided.
***also note that reason for not going to the doctor was because I had full range of motion with the hand and fingers, so there was no real need.
--- > besides I didn't punch through a brick wall, that's just crazy; only because of the sharp pieces would cut the hand. Also brick has a rough
surface which isn't good for punching.
What I did was punch through drywall that had a stud (wooden bar) behind it, and so not as dangerous.
The only reason I paniced was because the whole top of my right hand had balloned up, and it was weird but not dangerous since I had range of motion
and there was no bleeding.
