Hi I had 4 sparklers light up in my hand a week ago & have now got a nasty partial burn on my knuckle/finger. After pussing for a bit it's now cracked & scabbing over. It's cracking my skin & bleeding now & again & just generally really painful. What should I do?
How are you? Aside from the pain and discharge, what other symptoms are present? While pain medications may help relieve symptoms, it is best that you have this checked for proper evaluation. Infection is likely and management usually is with antibiotics. Keep the area clean and dry also. Take care and do keep us posted.
