    Trust me, I will try to never do that again. The machine was supposed to be off but wasn't and before I knew it, I had a stitch going through my nail into my finger. It is just one single stitch but does anyone know how to get it out? :XD:

    My goose bumps are going down.... First put lots of ice on it! Then clip and remove thread, don't forget to breath. Welcome from West Tennessee.

    cut the thread, pull fingers apart, stand up, stomp, cuss, stomp again. Repeat until you feel better

    Ouch,after you get it out put some antibiotic ointment or antiseptic on it. The numbing it with ice first is a good idea.
