Second opinion] Hi, i took a hard fall last weekend and a couple of my fingers have cuts. They seem to be heeling, but appear to be yellow/white is that a bad sign?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No symptoms, just a little stiff fingers where the cut is makes it hard to bend them fully

Here you go!

those look ok. I don't see signs of infection.

a lot of skin got pushed out of the way

you should use neosporin on those areas

and cover with a big bandaid or a telfa pad wrapped with paper tape around your finger

eating more protein can help you heal over time.

Thanks! i've been keeping them covered with bandaids and putting neosporin on. Do you think it'll take a couple weeks to heel?

yes, it will take a few weeks to heal

but it looks clean and healing properly

thanks for the positive feedback

Hi David,My skin has heeled and covered on these fingers, but from the knuckle down on my ring ringer is a little swollen/stiff still. Is this normal due to the skin growing back? I've been Icing and using epsom salt to try and help speed up the recovery process

yes, this is normal

that is new skin and scar tissue healing the area which can be stiff

try eating more protein and fruits and vegetables in your diet which can help with healing as well.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
