Treatment for Small Wound

When you cut your finger, what to do?

The usual treatment for small wounds, including finger cut, is:

1. Wash the area thoroughly

2. Apply antibiotic salve

3. Cover with a bandaid or other bandage.

The salve should be reapplied three times a day.

However, small wound may started out as a simple paper cut, but in fact they can be quite serious. So it is best if you see a doctor. This is more urgent if the condition of your finger is gradually becoming red, swollen, infected. Anti-biotic salve wouldn’t work and soaking it in regular salt warm water doesn’t help either. Don’t wait, call the doctor.
