SUTURES: Cut/Broke Middle Finger

ER Doctor says to see regular doctor in 10 days to take out sutures.

That is it. Prescribed medication for pain and infection prevention. That is ALL. Did not say to take off bandage or any care instructions for the finger. Just take medications.

My question is: Is that the norm?

What have you experienced regarding sutures on Hand or finger/s?

  • Pretty much it, keep it from getting wet. And leave it uncovered after the first day or so. As long as your not doing anything dirty or with chemicals then let the air at it.

    Just be careful not to tear any stitches. good luck
