I cut my hand with a razor blade yesterday, Its a flapped cut. It seems to be deep but i have not openes it up to look. I need to know if i need stitches
Hi Thank you for your question to HCM. A sharp object like razor is more likely than not to cause a deep cut. The chances are high that you will need stitches. The cut will need to be washed and sutured as early as possible to minimize chances of infection. Depending upon the depth of the cut you may need antibiotics. Hope this is helpful. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
