Because the size of our fingers tends to change over the course of the day, your ring can sometimes get stuck. When this happens, try one of these:

  • "Unscrew" the ring off your finger
  • To decrease any swelling, hold your hand up (above your heart) until the blood pressure gets lower, and try removing your ring
  • If neither of these help, soap and cold water, or hand lotion should do the trick.

If you can't get the ring off after several attempts and are experiencing pain or any discomfort, please contact a health care professional.
