Suggest treatment for a cut on the finger

Hi I cut my finger with a pair of child scissors yesterday and I cleaned out the cut and it wasn t too bad and I used hydrogen peroxide on it and it didn t burn but a little while ago when I used the peroxide it was burning quite badly. Why is that and what do I do to fix it?

hi,

it can be due to the inflammation of the tissues whre you felt a little of burning. try applying cold water or ice to get reduce of the symptoms. usually when hydrogen peroxide is applied on a tissue depending upon the sensory system the symptoms can come up. nothing to worry. just use little of ice and you should be fine.
