I am experiencing finger numbness in my right pointer finger for two days now. It happened after an art project with using an Xacto knife to cut.?
It should resolve: Hello Lauren. Assuming you didn't actually cut the finger with an Xacto knife? The numbness is likely from compression of the digital nerves that exist at your fingertip.

Avoid putting pressure on that finger directly until it does. ...Read more
