Here are narrations about putting ones hand on the particular place where you feel the pain (so that Allah removes it, inshallah):

Narrated by A'isha: The Prophet ﷺ used to treat some of his wives by passing his right hand over the place of ailment and used to say: "O Allah, the Lord of the people! Remove the trouble and heal the patient, for You are the Healer. No healing is of any avail but Yours; healing that will leave behind no ailment" (Allahumma rabban-nas, adh-hibil-bas, ishfih wa antash-shafi, la shifa'a illa shifa'uk(a), shifa'an la yughadiru saqaman)

Al-Bukhari (5743)

Ibn as-Sunni (551), graded Sahih by Shaykh Hilali in his Tahqiq (2/626), slightly different: (Bismillah, adh-hibil-ba's, Rabban-Nas, wa-shfi antash-shafi, la shifa'a illa shifa'uk(a), shifa'an la yughadiru saqaman)


Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said: "Place your hand at the place where you feel pain in your body and say: 'In the name of Allah' (Bismillah) three times, and seven times 'I seek refuge with Allah and with His Power from the evil that I find and that I fear' (A'udhu bil-lahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma a-jidu wa u-hadhir)

Muslim (2022)

"Put your right hand on it and say: In the Name of Allah, I seek refuge in the might and power of Allah from the evil of what I feel and what I fear (Bismillah, a'udhu bi-i'z-zatil-lahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma a-jidu wa u-hadhir) 7 times." U'thman bin abi al-A's ath-Thaqafi said: 'I said that, and Allah healed me.'

Ibn Majah (3522)

"Rub (or wipe) [the place] with your right hand 7 times and say: I seek refuge in Allah's might, power, and authority, from the evil of what I find (A'udhu bi-i'z-zatil-lahi wa qudratihi wa Sultanihi min sharri ma a-jid)

At-Tirmidhi (2080) which Abu I'sa classed Hasan Sahih

"[Firstly, say once:] In the Name of Allah, I seek refuge in Allah's might and power from the evil of this pain I feel" (Bismillah, a'udhu bi-i'z-zatil-lahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma a-jidu min waja'i hadha), then lift your hand and repeat that an odd number of times."

Al-Mustadrak (4/244), which Al-Hakim classed Sahih and Imam Dhahabi agreed upon

There are also various narrations which speak about using your (index) finger:

Sufyan narrated to us from A'bd Rabih ibn Sa'id, from A'mrah, from A'isha, that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ used to, when a person complained of something or had a wound or injury, he would say with his finger like this, and Sufyan put his index finger on the ground, then lifted it, saying: "In the name of Allah, the soil of our land, the saliva of some of us, to cure our sick, by the permission of our Lord" (Bismillah, turbatu ardina, bariqati ba'dina, li-yushfa bihi saqimuna, bi-idhni Rabbina)

Muslim (2194)
