cleaning and compressions.
Hello,Is it continuing to bleed despite compressions?Any numbness?Are you able to freely bend the finger?When was your last tetanus shot?Dr abby
some bleeding now. some numbness and not able to bend. tetanus updated.
Ok, thank you.I strongly recommend that you go to an urgent care or emergency room.If the cut is deep, you may have injured a nerve or tendon.The wound needs to be checked for any tendon injury, cleaned and sutured.They will numb your finger first :) Feel free to ask any follow up questions you may have and I will be happy to discuss further, Dr Abby If you are satisfied with my help, please remember to click accept.
