So how badly do you need to cut yourself in order for it to require stitches? I cut the tip of my thumb pretty thoroughly, but cleanly, on a piece of glass yesterday afternoon. I was drying a wineglass with a dishtowel and the glass shattered in my hand, a piece of it nearly slicing off the tip of my thumb. I managed to get the bleeding under control and got it wrapped up. Today it looks okay and there's no pain at all, but I'm kind of worried about this little flap of skin and flesh. It only hurts or bleeds a little when I accidentally bump it on something. Do you think I should get it looked at by a doctor?
