I cut my thumb deeply on April 9. This weekend I realized while the outside was healing, the inside hurt like heck and had a green pool in it. I ended up at the dermatologists this morning. She numbed up my thumb, and dug waaay deep into it to clean it out. She said it was so deep that the outside healed first, and the damaged cells inside just basically liquified. Ugh! No infection, but it was causing me to develop some pain and sensitivity to touch. It was ugly to watch her clean it out, and see how deeply she was going with that scalpel. It doesn't hurt as much as I thought it would, but the constant throbbing is awful! Anyway to minimize that?
