Wounds and Dressing
Hi Doc. I sliced my finger very badly the other night, no stitches required as it was a slice of the finger off that cut part of the nail bed off as well with a clean sharp knife. I went to the doctor two days later as it got infected. I am now on anti-biotics and it has been dressed properly. How often do I change the dressing and when can I stop wearing it?

Hallo KB
You can change the dressing daily. How big is the raw area?
