What Do You Do When A Baby Gets Her Finger Cut
Depends on cut: If the cut is small (<1/2 inch long) & shallow (barely thru the top layer) a good clean up with an antibacterial soap may be adequate.If longer, deeper, gaping or vaccines not up to date or you have concern about the location; a dr visit is warrented. Call your dr's office & decide on a time & location. Cuts should be stitched the same day if needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I cut my baby's finger with the nail clippers. It bleed for a while & i think it has stopped. I put a bandaid on it. How to i know it's stopped bleed?
Bleeding finger: As with any abrasion or minor scrape, most of this bleeding stops when bandaged as you have done. That means that basically if there's not blood running from the wound it's probably okay, but if there is flesh hanging someplace on the wound you should have it checked definitely in an emergency room! ...Read more

Can it hurt the baby if i'm 23 weeks pregnant and cut my finger while cutting raw beef? I washed well afterwards with antibacterial soap and water.
Baby stuck finger deep in my nose and her nail cut inside. It caused a lot of bleeding, stopped shortly after. Alcohol and Neosporin. Risk of sepsis?
Without thinking i handled raw beef and I have some very small open cuts on my fingers. I'm 17 weeks pregnant. Could this hurt the baby?
Wash hands well: Thoroughly wash hands well with soap and water. Keep wounds covered with band-aids, dressings. Monitor for sign and symptoms of infections. Be careful taking medications as this may harm the fetus. Consult your ob-gyn before doing so. Call your doctor for further advice. ...Read more
Varies with age: Babies are too young for finger foods (they don't really chew), even if they have some teeth. In toddlers, real chewing occurs after 18 months (when first molars appear), and even better chewing occurs after 2 years (when second molars appear). I don't recommend teething biscuits or any other cookies for babies, because chunks of biscuits tend to break off. The chunks may gag and choke babies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long does herpes on your finger last for? I have a little baby at home, can it be passed on to him?
First time?: The herpetic whitlow as it is called can be due to either hsv1 or hsv2 depending on which orifice the finger got it from. With antihsv therapy such as Acyclovir or valacyclovir, the lesion can be gone in less than a week. Hsv is not good for really little babies (neonates) but if you keep your finger covered and wash your hands, should be ok. ...Read more
