A couple of days ago I had a deep cut on my left hand which the nurses stitched up. I feel numbness in my palm, fingers and I'm very worried.
See Hand Doc: Since the palm is a functional surface, numbness is an important symptom. If can indicate nerve damage, and certain nerves need repair by a hand specialist. Usually can be dealt with within the days following the original injury. Call the original treating provider to discuss. ...Read more

Should my boyfriend have a deep wound- hole like need immediate medical attention? My boyfriend cut his hand with a scraper-like tool at work yesterday and I am afraid his cut might need stitches, however, we do not have any medical insurance and therefor
Oh my. It sounds like he has two separate injuries. The first issue is that he cut his hand deeply enough that you are concerned that he might need stiches. Usually, sutures are placed within 12 hours of an injury due to concerns about possible infection. Cuts to the hand can be quite serious, because of the way the hand is compartmentalized. An infection can spread quickly in the hand and cause loss of function.
The second injury is a deep arm puncture wound contaminated by battery acid. You have done what is termed bathroom surgery to cut away blacked skin but could only debride to a certain level.
His tetanus status is unknown.
Signs of infection include: redness, swelling, drainage, red streaks, fever, warmth. Your boyfriend has two high risk injuries and uknown tetanus status. I really think that he needs medical attention. If he doesn't get evaluated and develops serious complications the cost physically and financially could be much greater. ...Read more

I cut the palm of hand 4 days ago, hit artery and maybe nerve, 6 stitches. Still lots of pain. How long will it take to heal or at least hurt less?
Today I cut the palm of my hand requiring 6 stitches, also hit an artery. My fingers are very swollen, can you suggest home care? Dr was brief.
Elevate & Re-eval: Swollen fingers after a trauma to the hand can be worrisome. You state that an artery was cut...Sometimes the vein is cut as well, if that was tied off when they placed stitches the hand will have a hard time effectively draining causing swelling. Infection can cause swelling as well. If not on an abt and painfull swelling see a hand surgeon asap to prevent further complications. ...Read more

Had hand surgery on palmer crease, cut reopened after stitches removed, how to care for and exercise hand now, also how long before fully functional?
The palm skin often:
Heals well with dressing changes. And uncomlicated healing times differ but a good average time (known because there are certain surgical procedures where the pal is left intentionally open and unsutured) is about 3 weeks
still as u had surgery call your surgeon!
sometimes it is just the superficial dry or macerated skin and it is not open. Other times there could be infection or sinus tract. ...Read more
Cleaned and covered:
Gosh not a lot more to do than local wound care.
Do you smoke? Quit.
Do not pick off the scab.
Keep it moist and covered.
You could try warm packs to improve the blood supply to the area.
Make sure that it is not infected. Signs of infection are red, hot, swollen, tender to the touch and getting worse.
I like neosporin or bacitricin for my wounds. Apply 2-3 times a day. ...Read more

I cut a artery on the top of my hand I'd say about 6 weeks ago 12 stitches on the outside of my hand and one self dissolving stitch to stop the bleedi?
Should I take my stitches out? 16 days ago I had 10 stitches put into my hand after being cut by a razor knife. The area is now swollen, the stitches themselves are cutting into my skin and causing pain, but the cut is still gaping a little. Will it be ok
You: You need to go to the doctor. If the area around your cut is now swollen, you are in pain and wound is gapping - it is likely that you do have an infection. This is especially so if it is warm or has any drainage. Please find a way to see your doctor right away even if it will be a difficulty. ...Read more
