Hello and thank you for addressing your concern.

However, because the information provided is too short and unclear. We find it very hard to assess the real situation.

Ensure your injury is always sanitized. Grab these items to help you out.

However, with regard to the previous accident & trauma, I advised you to get immediate help if

  • experiencing lightheadedness
  • fever and other systemic abnormalities
  • continuous numbness in fingertip

In addition, numbness in finger might also be subjected to various health condition such as

  • Physical trauma complication
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Vascular abnormalities
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Neurological disorder
  • or other underlying health condition that need further assesment

With that being said, in order to determine your current condition/problems or to be able to decide on which therapy best suited if deemed necessary, an additional assessment must be done. Hence we encourage you to consult with the nearest clinic or hospital in your area.
