Customer Question

My dad cut his finger and doesn't remember doing it. In about 4 hours it turned black (area covering like 25% of his finger) you can see there's a small cut in the middle. It hurts (throbbing) and when he first noticed it (before it turned black) it was itching. He doesn't know how serious it is or not

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

I feel he needs an examination by doctor asap.

The black area can be due to lack of blood circulation or dead tissue.

As it is rapidly getting worse, I would suggest to get an examination in ER.

Tylenol can be taken for pain.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
