Don't wait that long. You'll have crap from the disc in there.

It barely broke the skin and though I was pretty rancid that day (Yes, Mollers... ) as I was wearing a filthy set of overalls, it was early in the day working on the Ballistic and it looked ok when I got back home. It started to look red and blotchy about a week later, then swelled up very fast.

Deal with it before it gets a chance to cause an issue. 3 weeks of strong antibiotics isn't nice.

When I was in hospital (broken pelvis) a guy came in for IV antibiotics after slicing into his finger with a stanley knife, he was discharged after a few days but was back a few weeks later for more IV antibiotics. Eventually he had to have his finger amputated.

If it were me I seek medical help NOW.

balls to using the nhs, for me its always tissue wrapped around then tightly bound with duct tape - im liking the idea of pva and a hairdryer!
as far as infections go i think i must have a decent immune system - i work around drains etc as a builder, and deal with dead bodies as an undertaker, not been ill yet!

Wow..Im a great DIY man too trailerguy ..but not to myself

I go weak at the knees when I see blood ..unless its in a black pudding supper from the local chip shop.

Perhaps a running stitch would have been better than an overlap stitch ?

Thanks for posting though ... it reminds me to be more carefull with my angle grinder now... I want even wearing safety glasses using mine 10 mins ago
