What is the treatment for hand laceration?

Caution...

Hand
A hand laceration is very tricky because all layers of skin, tendons, ligaments, nerves, muscles are all very close to surface; the skin is rather tight and any swelling can lead to destruction of one of the above parts. Furthermore it is the most important part of all the extremities for most functions. If very superficial, clean, dry, cover. If any more, ER for proper care, prevent/Rx infection.

Had you ever used glue on a hand laceration?

No

Sebum
Not personally, although for superficial fingertip laceration, such as from playing guitar, if you push skin edges together and then apply glue just to hold edges together, will work well. Really not a good idea for deep cuts

Any advice on how to heal my hand laceration?

How old is laceratio

Extremity-upper-hand
If it is recent,and as the current acceptable standard with in 24 hours it should be repaired with associated treatment.If it is old,more than 24 hrs or even 48 hours it is saer to let it heal by secondary intention( by it self with granulation tissue).But if it is complex and involves tendon,nerve etc,.go to the emergency room immediately.

Had you ever gotten a hand laceration without stitches?

Do you mean treated?

Extremity-upper-hand
If your question is treatment of hand laceration without stitches,the answer is yes.There are small lacerations you can treat by splnting with steristrips.Sometimes hand laceration will present 2- 3 days later when it may not be wise to close the wound by stitches which is better to treat as an open wound and let it heal by granulation tissue,of course which will take longer to heal and one will h

Do i have to be cleared by my doctor to play basketball? I had a hand laceration on the top of my hand that severed my pinke and wrist tendon and had to have them surgerically repaired. I had a check up yesterday and the doctor says they are healing fine

Definitely

Wrist_pain
These injuries need to be healed completely with therapy for strengthening and stabilization before starting basketball. The statement doing well doesn't mean it's done healing just progressing as expected
