    ButterflyDream in the Loungers posted she needs help, she has tried several things.
    Oil, running water, soapy water.

    I suggested soaking her hand in ice water.

    Any ideas?

    Isn't there a way to wrap dental floss around your finger several times to compress it while slipping the ring off?? Maybe try that w some vaseline or lotion.

    Oh so kind of you Spacee to post this for suggestions.
    You may have missed my Lounger post ...Thank you Rock
    I tried what Rock had suggested and oh my, it came off thankgoodness.

    I had to soak finger in Ice Water, Liquid soap, dental floss and dry cloth turning ring.
    The combo of all finally released the pressure, i have much swelling, I've been retaining fluid.
    Nurse at doc's office also tried , next step was to have my ring cut off finger.

    Thanks again Spacee, you've been so helpful.
    I don't think i'll ever put another ring on ever, this has been such a relief to have ring off.

    A jewler told me to spray windex on my finger,it contains silicone,works like a charm!!~~~Jeanne p.s. an added result is the ring is cleaned@ the same time!
