Do I have a rose thorn embedded in my finger?
Asked by sarahsugs (2893 ) March 6th, 2007
I was gardening and grabbed a rose stem by mistake. A thorn sunk pretty deep into the side of the middle joint of my index finger. It bled a little and then stopped. I thought a tiny piece of thorn might have broken off under my skin, but I couldn't tell and didn't want to go digging. I put some Neosporin and a Bandaid on it for a day. Now it's 3 weeks later and though the cut has healed over, my finger is still swollen on that side, hard to the touch, and it hurts when I press on it. Is there a piece of thorn in there? If there is, should I do anything about it?
