    Knuckle injury Healing:


    Hey Guys:

    I had to get between two pitbulls today and lost some parts of skin on my right pointer finger requiring 6 stitches. I had to help my brother-in-law keep from getting eaten by his two loving dogs.

    My question is, is there a way I can heal that part of my knuckle-finger so I can grip again ASAP? Tomorrow was back day, its leg day then I have to check in with wound care.

    Thanks!

    I am not an expert but maybe try keeping it wet. When I have a cut and go swimming or go in a hot tub it seems to help. For know could you put some kind of little pad on your finger and tape it so you can workout. Or try Neosporin I would ask the wound care doc when you go to see him

    I'm a field expert on hand/arm injuries.

    You need to let it heal for at least, at the very minimum 3 days, and re-asses with your doc.

    I'm still trying to figure out the bold part, your brother was being attacked by 2 animals capable of killing him, and you "got in between" them?

    So, it sounds like it's flesh between your knuckles. I've stitched that many times and needed it a few. Suck it up and let it heal or suck it the f8ck up. It's just flesh. IMO

    Put some sort of skin cream on it and then put a band aid on

    Thanks for the advice guys! I had my best healing by leaving it uncovered because moisture was causing all the skin the stiches were in to rot. So leaving it uncovered as much as possible was a saving grace, I figure I will use machines for heavier weights for the next few days until I think I can hold equal weights safely.
