Hi, I did something simple but some how hurt my thumb. It felt like a pop and immediately a burning stinging feeling, and what looked like a blue vein appear!. Then within 5 hours I have a bruise. From what I can assess I think its the muscle at the base of the right thumb. It seems a lite stiffer to move but im not in a lot of pain. What have I done? And what should I do?
Hi, It seems that due to small tissue injury on your thumb might gave some infection leading to bruise and tenderness. Go for one antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines to control infection. Apply ice pack on the part. Ok and take care.
