(HealthDay News) -- Normal joint and tissue swelling can make a ring difficult to remove from your finger.
Or a stuck ring can be a symptom of swollen joints caused by arthritis.
Either way, you may not have to leave the ring on permanently or have it cutt off, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand says.
Here are the group's suggestions for removing a stuck ring:
- Squirt some Windex, hand soap or oil on the finger and ring.
- Raise the hand overhead for up to 10 minutes with ice around the ring and finger.
- Use dental floss or thread to compress the swollen finger.
