Patient :Hi.. I had an accident 4 weeks ago when a door was closed on my finger.. I had a fracture near the finger tip and I had the nail removed and I got stitches on both sides of the nail and in the nail bed.. I had the stitches removed after 10 days except for those inside the nail as they are dissolvable.. So its been 2 weeks now however my finger is still swollen.. Its getting better but slowly..What do you advise?!
