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.

Q: You cut the tip of your thumb but the flesh is not completely off - but stitches are not required - should you disinfect and put a bandaid or go to the clinic?
