I have a tiny chip fragment in my little finger, minor crushing type injury. Are antibotics really required?


Posted by grace b

I have a crushing type injury to my little finger. some fingernail involvement and minor laceration. I may loose my finger nail. I am able to move my finger and the pain is minimal. My plan was to meticulously scrub/clean my wound daily. frequent bandage changes. Care to keep it clean and dry. I have the ability to see a doctor as often as I want. I think I can adequately take care of this. I do not think I need an antibotic. At the 1st sign that it is getting infected I can easily see someone. I certainly have had much worse injuries this to me seems easy to manage. Am I wrong in this thinking?
