And how do you know that stitches are not required? Go to the clinic to find out.
-From poster: It truly is not that deep. It was not bleeding all that much and I've seen a cut that needed stitches before. Not even close. A few of my friends told me to keep the two (thumb and loose flesh) together and they should "meld" together eventually. That the body regenerates like that. Another friend said I will see if ever it become infected because pus would come between and separate them.
Disinfect with Hydrogen Peroxide then wear a bandaid.
I would say to the fat tissue at least for stitches. If it is any shallower it can be closed with glue or steri strips.
Yes by using a proper water proof bandaid.
The bandaid was invented in 1921 by Earle Dickson.
Wash any dirt out with running water. Apply some Hydrogen Peroxide to disinfect the wound. Then you can apply some ointment such as ozonol. Cover with a bandaid or other dressing. The dressing can be changed once a day and more ointment can be applied if desired.
You get a bandaid......
The doctor or the bandaid.
get a bandaid and put it on
