  • You need stitches. I did this and it hurts like hell to get the stitches but do it. Maybe I should ash if it is a the tip or thejoint..
    If it is allong the length of the finger, absolutely. The tip you could get away with it but I would go anyway.

    Does anyone remember whenyou could just got to the family doctor and get a few stitches?

  • Probably should have stitches to lessen the chance of infection.

  • I would imagine that is a dirty cut... it needs more than just rinsed with water - at a minimum it needed soap.
    But now that it's glued shut, just keep an eye on it and head to the doc if it gets infected at all.
