How to safely and painlessly remove a ring stuck on your finger?

We all know what it's like to have a ring stuck in your finger that you can't pull out. Whatever the reason, a ring that is too tight can be very uncomfortable and even dangerous. You can learn how to safely and painlessly remove a stuck ring from your finger here.
 
It would be easy to remove the ring from your finger if you use any one of these three techniques:
  1. Raise your hand and place an ice pack on your finger
  2. Immerse your hand in the ice water, gently rotate and pull the ring at the same time.

Once you have removed the ring from your finger as described above, be sure to take care of your finger. You need:
  1. Clean your finger and disinfect any wounds that may have been caused when you removed the ring.
  2. Periodically apply ice to any swollen areas of your finger until the swelling subsides.
