    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.

    I'm betting since you were able to type your post you are past truly needing ideas at this point. ;-)
    Be careful from now on!

    Clean it well and keep a close watch for a red line going up the arm...as you know if you do see this happening get yourself to a doctor ASAP or even sooner.

    Hi and welcome from So. Cali.

    Make sure you're up to date on your tetanus shots...you never know!

    I can't imagine how much that hurts! And I hope I never find out.

    Welcome!

    If you haven't had a tetanus shot in the last 10 years, definitely get that! Actually, Adacel (tdap) covers tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis (whooping cough), and you can it if you haven't had those vaccines in the last 2 years (I think). Just call your doc or immediate care center.
