Ok, About 5 days ago the end of my finger got crushed playing rugby. Its been sore and very swollen for a few days but nothing major. I've been contemplating lancing it with a hot needle but as it wasn't very bad I thought I'd leave it. I don't think it's broken but here's the rub... The nail is going to come off. It bled for a little bit a few mins ago and the swelling (thank fuck) has gone down by about 50%. However it now looks like there is air under my nail. I'm pretty sure my nail will fall of so what do I do? Do you help it along? leave it as long as I can? And do I encourage it to bleed further to 'get it all out'? Thanks all, T C PS- That entire post, and all of mine for the last or so days, have all been one handed! Edit- 1000 posts! woo hoo!
