This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
it sounds like the knife was clean
you may benefit from going to the ER or A&E department at your local hospital and getting a stitch to help close the wound.
you will need to keep the area very clean and covered and dry with dressings.
icing with a bag of ice can help decrease pain and swelling.
it will heal with time.
I see it. it is on the back of the hand
it looks closed now
I can't see how deep the wound is.
do you know how to dress the wound and keep it clean?
if you see a doctor at the ER or A&E, they can prescribe you some pain medications
and you should bandage the area an ice it with a bag of ice wrapped in a towel
