How do you "unswell" a bone?

i hurt my finger a while ago, and now months later, my knuckle is still swollen up a bit. it's not discolored or painful. it's just larger than the other ones. what do i do? i tried cold compress, it doesn't work.

You could exercise your fist to keep the blood flowing through the knuckles since you're not in pain. If the bone remains swollen for a longer time, you could talk to your doctor about getting prescribed anti-inflammatory medication.

Your bones don't swell. It is most-likely the tissue or muscles around them. since ice didn't work, you might want to try some heat, from a heating pad. if that still doesn't solve it, you might want to see your doctor, you might've sprained it, or worst yet, it could be fractured.
