You either let your fingers heal or you risk permanent injury by not resting when your body tells you to, the choice is yours to make.
When i read your post i thought it said "I played 44 hours straight."

Rest is what your fingertips need, but what you can do is rub rubbing alcohol on your fingertips twice or three times a day (not right before playing, you don't want it on your strings/fretboard) what this does is dries out your fingertips and helps form callouses
Like David Gilmour?

Take your pants off and swing your wiener around in circles.
If you really want to play, you could always do some picking exercises without using the fretting hand?
