I Broke My Finger And Need To Type For Work What Can I Do
Not much: You are left to your own creativity here; it is definitely going to slow you down until it heals.

What to do if i broke my finger tip months ago. My nail fell off and theres a bump on the bottom will?
Nailbed?: Typically fingertip fractures requie no treatment for the fracture as there is no or minimal displacement and it will heal on its own. The nailed is often a problem. If you had a hematoma under the nail this indicates an associated nailed injury and is often why the nail falls off. If you have a bump in the nailed this can be a problem causing permanent problems with nail plate adherence. ...Read more
