Surgery - Hand Surgery

In brief: See a hand surgeon

Stabbing a finger can be a potentially worse injury than it seems.
There are numerous structures (tendons, nerves, blood vessels, joints and ligaments) all in a very small space. Probably best to see a hand surgeon to assess the injury and also make sure that there is no ongoing infection as that can also be quite painful in the finger.
