Patient :I fractured the 5th metacarpal in my right hand on 18th January, went to the hospital and it's now healing. Over the past few days when showering the fingertips of my little finger and ring finger become wrinkly after less than 5 minutes under the water. I know that this is normal but none of my other fingers do this after less than 5 minutes. Does this have something to do with my fractured bone?
