Thumb Bruised And Broken

Sources: Papers On Health

Frequently a tradesman will strike the

thumb or finger a serious blow with a hammer, in missing a stroke. If

not treated properly, the whole hand may be destroyed, but if promptly

plunged into warm clean water and kept there, even the broken bones can

be handled quite comfortably, and all pain and uneasiness pass away ere

very long. Plenty of bathing in clean warm water, and proper setting

and dressing, are all such an injury requires.
