My finger is disgusting. Mar. 14th, 2012 @ 08:28 AM Reply

So a couple weeks ago I got bit by a dog, on my birthday actually.
I wrapped it up and it was fine for the most part. I overlooked one small cut on the edge of my nail on my middle finger, though. At first it didn't really bleed or anything, so I was more concerned with the bigger ones on the rest of my hand.
But, a day or two after, the actual cut healed up, but it kept bleeding under the skin and sort of formed a bubble of blood on the tip of my finger.
I figured it wasn't a huge deal and I'd just let it pop and bleed out while I slept. But that just never happened. After a while I tried to pop it myself but I fucking hate seeing blood and couldn't do it.
Now it's sort of become a big scab, and the skin on top died, so it's at least separated from the rest of my finger and I'm not going to have to dig it out of myself. But, now I have to fucking pull the whole thing off and it's gross as shit.

My finger is disgusting.

You don't have to pull it off. I mean, you don't if you want to. Eventually it will shed naturally. And it will scar less that way.

I guess, but I want it off my finger. It's gross and uncomfortable and it makes it difficult to eat chips and do other things at the same time. Also if I do eat chips with that hand, I can't lick the fantastic chippy flavor off that finger, which just seems like a waste to me.

You want it gone, but you don't want to pop it because you hate blood? There's no solution.. unless you find someone else willing to do it. Personally I'd make a little slit in it instead of pop it so it doesn't squirt everywhere.

Since its a scab, its gonna fall of eventually. You might want to keep it wrapped up. Did you put any medicine on it or anything.

Just rap it up with gauze and medical tape and let it heal on its own.

try soaking it in warm water to help make it soft , after that rub it with an alcohol wipe let it dry, and then put polisporin (or some other kind of cream/gel antibiotic) as well as a bandaid and continue doing that everyday until it heals. If that doesn't heal it, I strongly recommend you go see your doctor :/

Yeah I should probably just let it fall off on it's own, but eh, I'm fucking tired of this thing. And no medicine but I kept it clean and shit.

Also, when it was still liquid blood, it smelled like a cat box that hadn't been cleaned in a couple weeks. But now that it's all solid the smell is gone.

Pulled the scab off, but it looks like there's blood under the nail too. Or my nail is just stained from having blood on it for 2 weeks. I'm not sure which.
It isn't as dark as it looks in the picture.

Thank god for that.

I really think you should go to the doctor, however. It doesn't seem like any normal wound.

It looks badly infected. Put some antibiotic cream on it and if it doesn't go away, go to a doctor.

If there's blood under the nail that's a pretty common injury from having a finger smashed in some way. I've had it happen 3 times. If the blood is fresh there's a way to get it out, but I'm guessing it's dried. Once when I did that the blood spread and dried under all of the nail and it fell off and regrew.. I don't remember about the others. Just go to a doctor.

Maybe take a hot shower or somthing to soften it up, and take a pin, close your eyes and look away, and pop it.
