Discolored finger
I teach 6th grade. One of my students said that his finger was stinging and he wanted to go to the nurse. We were going over something for a test and I asked if he could wait a few minutes and then he could ask again. He never did ask to go to the nurse again, but 15 or 20 minutes later my finger started stinging. I thought it was strange and perhaps psychosomatic. After school I noticed my finger was discolored and looked bruised brownish and felt as though it had a chemical burn like from a harsh cleaner. I showed the school nurse the next day, but she just looked at it with a mini flash light and said it looked as though I had hit the finger which I didn't . She started using a cleaner on her hands.It is about 3 days since this happened and my finger is still discolored on the one side, but it has not spread. It had felt a bit strange initially the first day, but feels normal now. What would be your advise? Do you think that it might be an insect sting? Staph? Some chemical or a school prank? I haven't had class with the student since but he hasn't been absent. He doesn't seem like the type that would do anything like this. Thanks!
