I used my nail cutter n cut a bit of my 3 month old's thumbnail skin while cutting his nails.I cleaned the blood n bandaid.Anything 2 worry r 2 do?

By removing the splint, you risk pulling the tendon away from the bone. This may delay or even prevent healing. The splint should be worn 24hrs/day, 7days/wk for 6 weeks for best results. If you have to remove the splint, keep the tip of the finger hyperextended. Put it back on asap. ...Read more

Fingering, masturbation, no bleeding, but finger goes deep inside, tried checking hymen by putting a blunt pencil, goes only upto 2 inches..Hymen broken?
Difficult to know: The hymen is a remnant of the tissue that was part of the vagina, before the vagina changed from being solid to being a tunnel, during embryological development. Girls who have never had intercourse can use tampons because the hymen stretches. Only about 50% of women will bleed the first time they have vaginal sex. I would not recommend putting objects like a pencil into your vagina. ...Read more
