Doctor :   hello
User :   hello you are medical professional ?
Doctor :  
how can help u
User :   i cut my finger 4 days ago, the wound is a small avulsion on my finger, after the bleeding stopped i cleaned and bandaged it, the skin flap stayed attached so i put it back in the little hole and there was some blood clotted that was holding it in place. i have been cleaning it once a day with hydrogen peroxide and neosporin. then either yesterday or two days ago the little flap is no longer sticking to the cut and the tissue is turning white. i just learned that H2O2 has a cytotoxic effect so could that be why the tissue isnt sticking and is turning white. if i stop h2o2 usage should i expect it to go back to normal or is that tissue dead now , and if it is dead now then do i need to go to a doctor to have it removed and the wound sutured ?
Doctor :
