What are Finger Injuries?
Finger injuries are common and range from minor cuts and scrapes to wounds with major damage to bone, tendons and ligaments. If not treated properly, serious finger injuries can lead to permanent deformity and loss of function. The main types of common finger injuries include: Laceration, avulsion (skin tear), amputation, fingernail injuries, fractures, ligament, tendon and nerve injuries.
How to treat Finger Injuries?
Control bleeding by direct, continuous pressure for at least several minutes; elevate the hand above the level of the heart to help slow the bleeding. Remove dirt or foreign objects; do not remove objects that are deeply or firmly embedded. Run your hand under plain tap water for several minutes, scrubbing gently with a washcloth if needed to remove dirt.
Always ask your pharmacist for advice before applying ointments or creams. If the finger is obviously deformed, painful, swollen, broken, severely cut, seek immediate medical attention.
For minor, superficial finger injuries (cuts and scrapes), cover with soft silicone wound dressing for gentle, pain-free adhesion and fix with textile Finger Bob dressing to protect.
1. Wash hands before and after applying the dressing.
2. Clean the wound area with gauze and clean water or Prontosan and dry gently.
3.Wait for the wound to stop bleeding.
4. Cut dressing to fit wound size if necessary.
5. Peel away protective films and apply silicone dressing over the wound and roll around the finger (or toe).
6 To hold the dressing in place, apply one Finger Bob over the dressing (see application drawings on the Finger Bob packaging).
Do not use on an infected wound unless recommended by a physician. If the wound bleeds or is swollen or painful within 7 days, seek medical advice. People with Diabetes should consult a physician before using the dressing. If you notice signs of infection on the wound site such as pain, redness, swelling or heat, you should seek medical advice.
