Finger swollen from cut

Common Questions and Answers about Finger swollen from cut


Avatar m tn I don't believe I had any cuts on my fingers but The next day I found out I had a soar swollen spot on my index finger! Some pus formed as well! I put some antibiotics cream on the finger and it's got better now! Could this infection be due to an std? Which one? Also yesterday I cut myself on a my other hand when I was trimming my nails ! I saw another guy today and we jerked off together! The cut wasn't fresh but it was still red.
Avatar f tn I looked everywhere on the internet, but an infection doesn't make sense, cuz the cut is so small and not deep. But I can't bend it, and it is swollen from tip to my hand, and a little on my hand. (pointer finger). I had a huge medical deductible so an xray would be pricey if it's unnessary... Thanks for any help you can provide...
Avatar f tn I figured it would go away, but when I awoke this morning it was extremely painful, red and swollen. I then noticed a little bump on the side of my finger that was not there. My finger had gotten worse, red and warm to the touch and the swelling has went from the to slightly down the finger with the redness travelling down the side of the finger and down the middle of the top of my hand. Everyone keeps telling my just to soak it, I probably got bitten or it's infected.
Avatar n tn As you know, it is unlikely that your masseuse had HIV but, even if she did, there is no risk for infection from having placed your finger on or in her vagina or if you got genital secretions from her on or in your cut. For HIV to be transmitted in cuts, because the cuts effectively seal off almost immediately after they occur the infected material must get deep into tissue immediately at the time of the cut.
Avatar n tn 4-5 weeks ago i had sex with one female, and i had a small cut on my finger ,i put that finger in her for about a minute , and i felt little burning around the cut, as i remember my cut wasn't big and wasn't bleeding, but i just felt burning on it(around) the cut.Is it high risk exposure to HIV saying if she's possibly HIV+ ??.That's my first question, second question is : I had unprotected anal sex at end of august (26th) it was unprotected accidentaly for about 15-20 seconds.
Avatar n tn hello I cut my thumb with a new knife about a week ago the cut is about a inch long and a few cm wide It was a sliver of skin I cut off when I was cutting flowers for Vanentines Day I was helping at my friends flower shop, It took about two days to get the bleeding to stop.I cant seem to get it to heal, I suffer from a low immune system I have been keeping it clean and using antibotic cream (neosporine) on it it is painful non stop. I have kept it covered. Im am at at a loss.
Avatar n tn (follow up question) i am very depress right now about a situation in which i fingered a woman for about a minute or less not remembering that there was a knife cut that was a bit fresh on one of my finger, the cut was a reasonable size that i got the day before. after remembering the cut i started to worry. it was not bleeding at the time i fingered her. the cut looked like it was starting to heal at that time.
Avatar f tn I get littlle cuts on my fingers near th cuitcals and right now all of them are swollen red and when ever I touch them they bleed a little bit and it's not like a normal bleedingof a cut it's just a squeeze and that's all the blood. What is wrong with my hands?
Avatar f tn I have a friend in Virginia who had the exact trouble in the knuckle of her middle finger. She did'nt cut it open, but she soaked it in warm salt water, advice she'd gotten from an elderly woman at her church. After she soaked it the pain became unbearable & she went to her Dr. His diagnosis was Gout. He performed outpatient surgery to remove the infection. She's fine now, but she had a rough time of it. She's 82 years old.
Avatar n tn Exactly 13 weeks ago, I deeply fingered a promiscuous (so the locals tell me) 42 year old woman with a cut/tear on my finger from biting my nails. 8.5 weeks later my girlfriend, who I had had unprotected sex with 3 or 4 times during the 8.5-week period between weeks 4 and 8, began to complain of a sore throat and headache and nausea.
Avatar m tn I have noticed that my lower gums look more inflamed and bleed. I had cold sweats last night. Also, I had a cut on my ring finger which happened about 10 hours before. I don't believe I inserted my fingers into her vagina but they may touched her labia and been in contact with vaginal fluids. I am worried about HIV risk due to the deep kissing with bleeding gums, and the possibility of my cut finger being in contact with vaginal fluids. I do not want to put my wife at risk.
Avatar n tn However my concerns arose the following day when I noticed a fairly deep cut around 1 cm long on my middle finger about 1cm above the nail. I remembered I had cut this on a glass literally only an hour or two before the sexual act. The finger bled at the time for a while. What worries me is that I’m fairly certain I was fingering these women with the cut finger for a while and also one of them was sucking on it during intercourse. What are the risks via this route of transmission, i.e.
Avatar f tn Okay so all these symptoms are not related to HIV and I can 100% move on from this? 2. Even if he had an open cut with HIV virus present in the cut and his cut touches my cut there couldn't be a transmission? 3. What about blood to blood? I've read there has been a handful cases from fights, accidents, etc where transmission has occurred from blood to blood contact.
Avatar m tn The last thing that bothers me is the case when I found a cut on the distal phalange of my 5th finger of an unknown origin, It was a epidermal decolation though there was blood i guess, surely when I pressed circumferentialy (not on it ofcourse). I used medical alcohol for desinfection.
Avatar m tn several reasons why you had no risk #1...your cut was already healing...cuts heal from the inside out #2...insignificant cuts just dont create a measureable risk #3...once hiv is exposed to air it becomes inactive and unable to infect you had NO risk !
Avatar f tn My feet are swollen to two or three times their normal size. Been traveling (moved 850 miles) and am 36+5 weeks. Feet are up, but I'm feeling so miserable. And still gotta unload.
Avatar n tn My doctor took out a tendon from my middle in order to stop the clicking in my middle finger. I have been having severe nerve ending smart pain periodically in my finger. It almost takes to the ground it is so painful. Sometime it takes 30 - 40 minutes for my finger to feel better. Is it normal for a tendon to be remove to fix a clicking finger? If so, is the pain normal? Thanks!
Avatar f tn 1) I am scared that the metal tool she used to cut my finger is dirty/infected (she later confessed they do not use an autoclave to sterilize, only disinfectant solution) AND 2) She put her bare finger (no gloves!) on the cut to stop the bleeding before covering it with a cotton pad! I'm concerned about an infection (especially staph / MRSA!) or even something like HIV because I had a fresh, open and bleeding wound from a possibly dirty tool and she touched it with her bare hands!
Avatar n tn org/posts/HIV-Prevention/Fresh-finger-cut-exposure---Im-an-idiot-i-know/show/435924 I understand that its not very wise to judge my own situation based on above post, however, similarities between events do worry me. I got tested at 24 days post exposure by rapid finger prick test and it came back negative. Now at 27 days post exposure I am starting to get fever, muscle ache, feeling of nausea,slight discomfort in the throat.
Avatar m tn ) At some point during this week I also noticed these some small blisters on the inside of my ring finger, almost exactly across from where some blisters on my pinky had popped. At this point I realized it was spreading by contact with the pus from the broken blisters and went to a special effort to not pop them.
Avatar m tn Later on that night, I washed my hands with soap and water, and I could easily see that my fingers and knuckles were quite dry, cracked, and even a bit swollen with redness. I applied pressure to my finger, and no blood became visible. I also noticed that there was a small area on the inside of my cheek that had some tiny dark red spots (kind of like if I had an incidental cut on the inside of my cheek that had begun healing.
Avatar f tn Looks like a little hole, swollen so I can't bend my finger, my finger hurts pretty bad, feels like the whole thing is bruised.
Avatar n tn He returned today and with my husbands request the doctor did not put the hard cast on but taped the pinky to the ring finger and then put a soft cast from the tip of his fingers to his elbow. My son fractured his hand playing baseball, went on to play in three more games with the fingers wrapped before we were able to get the first appointment. He states that there is no pain but there is bruising and a smal amount of swelling in the area between the two fingers. Finally, my question....
Avatar n tn wheezy sounds when I breathe from a swollen and mucus-covered epiglottis; lots of mucus--particularly at night and early in the morning. In my case, it started after I had a severe allergic reaction to some high-dose vitamin d3 pills I was taking (prescribed by my GP to combat low vitamin D levels). My throat became severely inflamed, and I started choking on food and pills. Then I had some pills get caught around my epiglottis and I seriously thought I was going to choke to death.
Avatar f tn Also fingered her with a superficial cut (from my understanding is zero risk) 2 days later I had slight burning at the tip of my penis and pain with ejaculation. Went to planned parenthood, they tested me and gave me 1g azithromycin and ceftriaxone injection. The symptoms went away. Weird thing is they said they would call me if the tests came back positive so sex partners could get treated as well, and I haven't got a call back....
Avatar n tn The patient had not been on any medication, but was not in the hospital because he was dying of AIDS, he was a trauma case. The paper cut was on the back of my finger near but not on the knuckle. I had removed my soiled gloves intending to put on another pair when I felt the splash. I am concerned that the location of the cut, washing my hands, and bending my fingers in the 34 hours after the cut might have kept the wound open enough for HIV to enter.
232328 tn?1207093671 It is really red and swollen and I don't know what it could be from or what to do to help her. She is 9 weeks old so it is not like I can put a band-aid on her finger. I washed her thumb and put some Triple Antibiotic cream on it but I don't know what else to do. I gave her a little Tylenol hoping that it would help with the swelling. Her fingernails were cut like 6 days ago. Could DH have cut the nail back to far and it caused this? Seems like her finger would have gotten swollen before now.
