So it just hit me my sore thumb is from playing guitar a lot.  I've never had this!  That means I'm playing a lot more than ever before.


What would you suggest for working it out to ease into the rigors of playing a lot?   FYI it's my left thumb as I'm right handed.

Possibly ice and some ibuprofen or another anti inflammatory.


I’m betting someone on YouTube has a channel for working out thumb problems.  Good luck!

I find myself in the same situation. I think Ice and hand cream may be helpful. You need to relax time.

Wearing a splint to immobilize the thumb and reduce pain can be helpful

Very infrequently I have wrist pain, so I stop playing for a few days and wear one of these...

So maybe some rest and one of these would help you out?...
