Im still new here but here is suggestion:

1) if you play acoustic guitar try to get strings with a plastic wrap..the sound will be softer but will get you started.
2) try not to press hard on the strings when you play. People think that you have to press with all your might to get a good sound..all you get will be a pain between your thumb and first finger
3) Do not exercise solos, licks etc...they involve too much push and pulls as well as neck walk so it might cut you..learn da chords first
4) Try to exercise just few min a day..gradually incrase. At first you will notice that there will be no pain as soon as you start getting some stop..
5) Cut the nail short and try to press the string with the tip of the finger..nail will make it difficult.

just my 2 cents.. soon or latter you will do just fine.
