I stapled my finger. Kinda swelled & hurts. Right where knuckle is. Normal for area to feel stiff? Hurts to bend it
After a puncture: Wound, swelling and stiffness would be expected but if the area stays swollen, gets red, gets more swollen or has signs of increasing pain with passive motion, that could be a sign of infection. It is something ot watch for. While dramatic, a staple in the hand or finger often doesnt cause any long term issue.
