And This Is My Typing Finger



I cut the shit out of my finger and—having taking aspirin all weekend—bled like a stuck pig.

Note the smaller cut on the ring finger also.

This has been a bicth to type, I am taking a couple of days off.

Yucks. Looks like you had the bandaid on too tight, too.

And you are supposed to tell how you cut it so that people can visualize the carnage and gore.

Egads! Which begs the question: what WERE you cutting? The cheese? A rug? Large sections of very dangerous pipe?

Byron: No bonnet for you!

Dan: It was tagaderm and a gauze 2x2, holding in the moisture, mascerating the surrounding skin.

Anna: I cut it grabbing a safety razor out of a bag. There was a tremendous amount of blood.

Spider: We'll take your word on that one.

(Actually, you are not far wrong. Syphilis can present as a painless ulceration, thus the importance of taking a thorough history from a pateint.(i.e. 'Did you cut your finger on something?') You can see for yourself what primary syphilis looks like via the self-learning module, provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada, if you don't mind socialized learning, at: http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/slm-maa/slides/syphilis/pages/j505.html )
