At what point do you need to get stitches?

How deep/big does a cut need to be to justify getting stitches. I sliced my finger pretty badly, like about and an inch - two inches long and like a quarter inch deep. Does it need stitches or should i just try to let it heal and see how it goes? Ty :)

    • I dont care about a scar, just as long as it heals

    • Show All
    • Maybe use a butterfly or 2 along with the tape... bbe sure to keep it clean to avoid infection

    • Already done that, thank you :)

  • A quarter inch deep? I mean if it was anywhere else on your body its not that deep, but on your finger thats pretty deep. I would think you need stitches.
