Minor scrapes and abrasions happen to us all the time. No matter if we are all thumbs or extremely careful, they just happen! Chopping food for dinner may result in slicing one’s finger, performing Do-It-Yourself tasks puts your hands at risk, too, and using gloves to protect your fingers isn’t always possible, especially when performing very intricate manual tasks.
After you suffer a cut or laceration you may sustain bleeding, pain, infection and future scarring. Their severity depends on the depth of the cut, and the extent of the damage to the structures beneath the skin. That’s why it is recommended that every cut which length is greater than 2 inches is inspected by a medical practitioner at our urgent care in Forest Hill or other locations.
