Ben
What should you do if you cut off a small tip of your finger?
Question
In a minor kitchen accident yesterday, I sliced off a small round tip of my index finger. It is about 3 mm in diameter, and maybe 1.5 mm thick at the thickest point.

I wasn't sure what to do, so I picked up the sliced off bit, rinsed it and my finger, and held it in place over the wound. That was the least painful way to apply pressure to the wound to stop it from bleeding. When the bleeding had slowed/stopped, I covered the area in sterile gauze and secured it with bandage tape.

I changed the bandage after about 6 hours (before bed), and added some polysporin, mostly to avoid it sticking. I normally don't use the stuff, but the first bandage stuck and really hurt to take off. I changed it again this morning, and the "patched on" tip of my finger still looks a good color and appears to have become re-attached. Is that even possible?

What is the correct thing to do when you slice off a piece of fingertip? Some people told me I should have gone to the hospital for them to "glue" it back on, others told me I needed stitches. Neither of these seem like reasonable solutions for such a tiny flesh wound. My plan is to keep it clean and dry, and air it out for 1/2 per day until it heals.

yes it is possible for it to reattach but I would keep it dry and dressed for the 1st week. Just so you know, the tips are most awful cuts to get because your nerve endings are all housed there, thats why we have sensitive touch in our fingers. So those wounds are horrible. Good job tho, I can only point out if it starts to fester, you will need and anti-biotic. Should be good tho

First thing you should do is to put some pressure on it to stop the bleed... Try using a clean cloth by wrapping it on an affected area...then go to ER together with the piece of fingertip yuo've accidentaly sliced off for some assessment and management... Only Doctor's knows what's the best thing to do with that... He may also prescribed you some analgesic for pain and antibacterials to prevent a serious infections..
