Should my boyfriend have a deep wound- hole like need immediate medical attention? My boyfriend cut his hand with a scraper-like tool at work yesterday and I am afraid his cut might need stitches, however, we do not have any medical insurance and therefor
Oh : Oh my. It sounds like he has two separate injuries. The first issue is that he cut his hand deeply enough that you are concerned that he might need stiches. Usually, sutures are placed within 12 hours of an injury due to concerns about possible infection. Cuts to the hand can be quite serious, because of the way the hand is compartmentalized. An infection can spread quickly in the hand and cause loss of function. The second injury is a deep arm puncture wound contaminated by battery acid. You have done what is termed bathroom surgery to cut away blacked skin but could only debride to a certain level. His tetanus status is unknown. Signs of infection include: redness, swelling, drainage, red streaks, fever, warmth. Your boyfriend has two high risk injuries and uknown tetanus status. I really think that he needs medical attention. If he doesn't get evaluated and develops serious complications the cost physically and financially could be much greater. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I cut the palm of hand 4 days ago, hit artery and maybe nerve, 6 stitches. Still lots of pain. How long will it take to heal or at least hurt less?
Had hand surgery on palmer crease, cut reopened after stitches removed, how to care for and exercise hand now, also how long before fully functional?
The palm skin often: Heals well with dressing changes. And uncomlicated healing times differ but a good average time ( known because there are certain surgical procedures where the pal is left intentionally open and unsutured) is about 3 weeks still as u had surgery call your surgeon! sometimes it is just the superficial dry or macerated skin and it is not open. Other times there could be infection or sinus tract. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should i take my stitches out? 16 days ago i had 10 stitches put into my hand after being cut by a razor knife. The area is now swollen, the stitches themselves are cutting into my skin and causing pain, but the cut is still gaping a little. Will it be ok
You : You need to go to the doctor. If the area around your cut is now swollen, you are in pain and wound is gapping - it is likely that you do have an infection. This is especially so if it is warm or has any drainage. Please find a way to see your doctor right away even if it will be a difficulty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
