Injured A2 on finger jam?

Can't Post

My ring and middle finger on my left hand were sore after following someone on a 13a finger crack about a week ago. They didn't feel sore today but then I fell on a 12 layback, my ring finger jammed, and I ended up falling and hanging on it. I finished the pitch using my other fingers, but I think I tore my A2. It isn't sore when I pinch the area, but it hurts whenever I put any weight whatsoever on the finger.

I see no swelling so I'm not taking any NSAIDs. Do I just lay off the finger for a month or what? I'm considering putting it in a tube so I don't use it by accident—my other fingers seem strong.
