Can a real swollan and tender knuckle indicate a infectious wound ?
About a month ago I cut my Knuckle very deeply. I took good care of it but I m a guy, I work on things, cars, construction, ect.. so i bumped it alot. I m starting to get a little doubtful as to wether its healed properly. The knuckle is still real swollan and tender. Could i possibly have a infection? Robert
Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
You are having a infection with inflammation. Apply T-Bact Ointment and cover it with a sterile gauze. Have Tab. Ibuprofen 400mg one SOS whenever the pain is severe. Give your Hand adequate rest.
