The back of my hand was punctured by part of a broken light, it didn t go in 90 degrees more like at a slight angle like 15 into part of the back about an inch and a half and almost broke the skin for a through and through. It swelled up a ton and over the past two days has reduced some but my knuckles are barely distinguishable. I have iced it and kept it clean there is no pus but the back of my fingers are turning slightly purple and red and my hand does hurt slightly. I also keep it elevated. do I need to go to the hospital?
