Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening Mike, I am Dr Elliot. When did they injure their hand and it there any bruising or swelling there?
Thanks - is the burning sensation still present? and is it tender to touch?
Thanks. So if there is no bruising and it is not tender, then I am not as concerned regarding a bony injury and would therefore agree a soft tissue injury could have caused this
I think it would be reasonable by 1 week if the burning sensation is not beginning to settle then someone should have a look at it
If there is no reason they cannot use a topical anti inflammatory then I would use that for a few days to see if it speeds up the recovery
Please ask if there did anything else. Please could you also kindly rate my answer. This is the only way I am rewarded for answering questions. Thank you
