I've had 2 small cuts on hand, Saturday a thin metal fragment from a brillo pad embedded into myfinger pad and i didnt notice until I rubbed my hand with a towl and yelped when i pressed the metal thread. Got tweezers, alcohol, a needle i sterlized and began surgery. Spinter popped out, alcohol splashd okay Bacitracin then a bandaid. that was SAturday and by Tues morning I couldnt bend my finger, it was red and almost purple, I couldnt touch or press it. I just went to my docs office, this happened 2x in a month--I'm on antibiotics, now with 2 refills to keep as reserves. what interesting for me is how my body exhibits some issue that requires antibiotics--and when I finally obtain the med, its like a heavy black cloud lifts... i left my office piled down with =paperwork and took the train for an hour to go home. Walked home frm busm digging in my bag, no keys, dump eveything on car fendor, look thru everything,no keys. Tis means i walk 20 minutes back to subway, 1 hour trip back to office, get keys and a 4th return trip home. I couldnt do the subwau again and took a taxi home.
