Cortisone is temporary and is weakening the ligaments and tendons in the long run. It only cures the symptoms not the problem. Taking NSAIS ( Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs )is not good also , since inflammation is a way for nature to fix things up. eliminating inflammation will make things worse eventually. Listen to your body , rest your fingers and wrist , avoid anything that causes pain. using some ice in moderation when there is a flare up is a good alternative choice over medicines. when / if eventually you feel better start exercising and strengthening your joints. there are a lot of sites to look for advice.
Curcumin is a natural Anti-inflammatory to use if the pain is not bearable. Also Collagen , and Glucosamine will help to lube and strengthen the joint.
