Numbness in finger after getting bitten. Painful. Any suggestions?

Hi, someone bit my pinky finger about a week and a half ago, it s been numb on the left side of my finger. I haven t had pain until some a little minor pain tonight. I ve been using a something that s goes on my finger for cooling it. I can move my finger without pain so I figured my nerves will recover. Any suggestions?

Do not worry as some time there is pressure in the nerve which can cause decrease sensation for some time but it will recover in due time so do not be worried. I would also suggest you to rub your little finger with other hand so it will recover faster. Till that time you can take Methylcobal tablet.
