Dd1 has yet again learnt the hard way why i tell her not to do/touch something. This time, she was trying to sharpen an already sharp knife (which she knows damn well she shouldn't be touching to start with) and sliced her finger. The bleeding stopped fairly quickly with some pressure, but the skin is not closing, it stays open like in the pic. Its kind of deep, nowhere near bone deep or anything, maybe a couple a layers? I rang the after hours dr and they said therw wasnt much they could do and would be better off taking her to the e.d to have it looked at. Only issue is its just me and the kids, 2 of which are in bed and i have nobody to watch them and we could be up there for hours waiting to be seen. Plus i really don't think its that bad! I have put a bandaid on it and she says its not hurting now (happened about an hour- hour and a half ago).
What do you think? Just a nasty cut and bandaid should do the job or would it be worth having it looked at? My only concern is how the skin is staying open and not closing back together (although maybe after having a bandaid on for a while it may have healed a little more).
