Do we need to do anything special for a bruised finger tip? I've heard all my life to watch for cuts or bruises on my feet. But then I think in the last few years I heard to watch out for your fingers too. I think the difference is that you see your fingers constantly but you feet you have to remember to check.
I happened to stab my finger this morning with my pump needle. I've been on a pump for almost 10 years now and this is the first time I have ever stabbed anything other than the body part I was aiming for. And the only reason I am asking is because my finger tip is now black or purple. I'm sure it is ok but I would rather not have to have anything amputated. I like my body parts where they are now, lol.
