Slammed my finger in the door and it still hurts: When should I go to the doctor?
I slammed it in a bedroom door- so originally I wasn’t worried about it. But it’s been 24 hours and it is still throbbing. It is clearly bruised under the nail- and I feel like there might be some issues with circulation.
About 14 years ago I slammed my finger in a car door- and it was like this. Eventually the fingernail fell off and my fingernail has been deformed ever since. I DO NOT want this to happen again. My parents told me that if I had relieved the pressure (drilling a hole through my nail) that it wouldn’t have happened. (They wanted to do it themselves- I’d go to the doctor.)
At what point should I go to the doctor?
