cut my finger... should i go to the doctor?
last night i was sitting in a pool chair and my friends thought it would be funny to push me into the pool, i cut my hand on the chair and the skin was dangling off so i ripped it off. its maybe an inch long and it looks like it was like 10 thin layers of skin deep. it's been about a day and a bit and it is still hurting me a LOT. hot water really hurts, and i've had a bandaid on it (changing it regularly) but it's tingling and looks like ... dry and glossy almost like a burn. will it be okay? it is REALLY sore... i work at a grocery store so a bandaid is a good idea for it i think... it really hurts without the bandaid on it.

Make sure that it is clean, even if cleaning it hurts, it will hurt a lot less than an infection. Use an alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to do this. If you don't have either, the second best thing to do is run it under warm (NOT hot) soapy water. Keep it covered with a large bandaid, or sterile gauze to prevent infection, especially at work. Try to limit movement of that finger to speed the healing process. If the surrounding skin becomes red, very painful, or swollen, or you develop a fever, you need to see a doctor because the wound has become infected. Take some ibuprofen or acetaminophen (tylenol) to reduce pain and inflammation.

You do not need to see a doctor for what is really a minor cut. Just keep it clean and if it hurts to put it in hot water then don't put it in hot water. Put a band aid on it and in a few days you won't even know it's there.

If you go to the doctor, he will put on some betadine or another medicine. Thus its recommended to go to the doctor (you may have an infection) you can stay at home and treat yourself with medicine. If its glossy it means that its gonna heal and when it becomes kinda iching then you know that it`s done.

I think you should get stitches because I have a cut that was like that and now it's gonna leave a scar so the best thing is to go to the hospital and get stitches.

It'll be fine, just put some triple antibiotic ointment on it if you want to do something for it, and let the air at it when you can. The band-aid is good for the first day, but it needs the air if it's going to heal. Keep it clean though. I work retail and I got a lovely gash one day that sounds about the same as this, and it hurts like mother for a few days, but it should heal just fine if you watch out for it. Edit: While you work, yea definitely keep a band-aid on it. Sorry, probably shoulda mentioned that. It could get dirty at the grocery store and then get infected and then you would have an issue. And you don't need stitches...if it stopped bleeding and you can't see anything that resembles bone it will heal on its own, but yea it will likely be a light scar.
