Question

Fishermen: Can something serious happen if you are stuck by a fish's fin/tail?

A week ago, I stuck my hand in the freezer for something and ended up sticking it on what I found to be a frozen fish tail on a whole fish, which was in a ziplock bag. I don't know how old it is, but it bled (like a small prick) and now I really feel it. I feel a small throb and I'm concerned. I want to be able to wear a ring on that finger some day. Lol

Answers

My remedy (if it isn't healing right ie., change of color, persistant pain) is to break/re-open the cut/puncture and smother the injury with Hydrogen Peroxide (best disinfectant over the counter) and cover with gauze re-applying peroxide when necessary. Other than that you'll be fine <);-3

Note: When ya' see the peroxide foaming after application ya' know it's cleaning it out of any infectants...

You need to see a doctor as getting stuck by a fish any part can get infected because of all of the bacteria
