Suggest Treatment For Broken Blood Vessel In Finger

I broke a blood vessel in my left finger 4 days ago. The whole finger turned colors-red and blue. No much swelling. Today it s throbbing more, aches more, and is a little more cold to the touch than my other fingers. Should I be concerned or let it run its course? Thank you. Jackie

Hi,Dear,Thanks for your query to HCM.
Dear I read your query and reviewed it with context to your query facts.
I understood your health concerns and feel Concerned about them.

Based on the facts of your query, you seem to suffer from-
Thrombosis of the broken Vessels of left finger.
Throb and coldness are ominous indications.
I would suggest you to Consult Surgeon -Urgently and to rule out Arterial obstruction / or traumatic thrombophlebitis.
So you need to be concerned and act fast.
Your Surgeon would assess the case and would treat your case with -anti-inflammatory and antibiotics- if needed.
Rest and Elevation may be thought of,with Consult from your doctor.
Hope this would help you to solve your health issues in the best way possible.
Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Thanks for posting to hcm,
I think the redness which is mentions can be a inflammation for that you should take a antibiotic like amoxycillin for 3-5 days till there is granulation tissue formation in the wound. Otherwise things look normal.
