    So... i managed to stab my self in my finger with a screw driver... how dose not matter :p but im not sure if i should go to a&e with it or not..

    The cut is deep, about 0.5cm in length.. the bit that concerns me is that while cleaning it out i could see the fat under my skin poking out the cut :puke2: kinda made me feel sick :(

    Im also out of plasters and so is the local shop! ugh..

    Just keep cleaning it out and then keep it covered. It sounds painful and from how you've described it quite gruesome too, so I'd definitely get it checked out as soon as you can.

    In the olden days people just washed it out and wrapped it in a rag and hoped they wouldn't need an amputation. Just do the first of the three till tomorrow.

    What have you been doing with the screwdriver? If your not up to date it is best to get yourself a tetnis booster.

    I've had this happen twice on different fingers, I washed it out with rubbing alcohol, pushed everything back to where it should be and put a bandage (band-aid) on it. Healed fine, slight surface scare.

    I was thinking more along the lines of perhaps using it to do oily screws up on a car or undoing a computer case etc- but anyway tetanus is not an issue if your immunised

    working in engineering, ive had loads of cuts, you get used to whats bad or not.

    I sliced my finger on razor sharp metal, Boss was like put germaline on it, (his quick fix for everything it seemed).

    But wasnt convinced, i dont drive, but the 1.5 hour walk to the hospital, didnt detour me, i mean it wassnt my legs that were hurt.

    Wasnt as bad as i assumed, and loctite was all that was needed to seal it, stitches not required.

    So i suggest you do go now ASAp, just to get it checked out, i know hospitals are busy, but hey, when you pay NI your entitled to get it sorted out or looked at.

    What were you doing by the way.....

    rule 1, never cut towards yourself
    rule 2 never have hand in way when using screwdrivers

    dont have the knoledge obviously as our Mr. Rifle grunt, so bow to his knoledge.

    Help you assemble the pc, no probs mate, help reassemble you, sorry.

    When you have cleaned it, put some (clean & unused) toilet paper around it (not too tight) and some duck tape (or something similar) to make sure it stays at it's place.

    tetanus is still a fatal disease, if you haven't had a shot in 5 years you need to go in and get one. Also get a stitch or two if the fat is poking through.

    I know this sounds like a smart assed answer, but I'm serious...
    Is it's a fairly clean cut, first clean it, obviously.
    You can use super glue to seal it, and stop the bleeding.There's something in it that is antibacterial as well as forming a bond.It was used a lot in the field in Viet Nam.

    It burns for a minute, but that goes away pretty quickly.I, and guys at my old job did it for years.Sometimes, even stitches can be avoided.

    As far as disinfectants are concerned, iodine is the best there is. Also if you have any antibiotic powder or creme, you should apply some just to be on the safe side. I seriously doubt that it cannot wait until tomorrow. Btw, where on your finger did you stab yourself? The tip?

    Clean with fresh water, clean with alcohol (vodka ftw) and put some bandages on it..
    You'll be fine in a couple of days..

    I've cut my upper right leg years ago when a heavy plastic barrels handle that I was getting out of the basement broke..
    The handle was in my hand, but the barrel with the sharp edge slammed on my leg and I had a nice 0.7cm deep and 20cm long cut that was bleeding like hell..
    I've poured some vodka on it, and put bandages on. After a week it was all fine (except for the scar that's still there :) )

    Hydrogen Peroxide (dilute) is also a good antibacterial cleaner
