Question
Posted by: Renata | 2010/10/18

slammed thumb

I have slammed my finger between the car''s door and it is the 3rd week now, i consulted my docter and he only drained out the old blood and without any medication.
Only now is half of my nail loose like coming of, and it is feeling painful again.
What do i have to do to ensure it does not get septic.

Hi R

The nail will most probably come off, but infection is less common. Just keep it clean for now. If you suspect infection to have set in, your doctor will have to take a look at it again and prescribe an antibiotic accordingly.
