I cut my thumb w/ a knife, near the center?

Steri trips are on it, covered with gauze. How long should I leave steristrips on?

    The cut should be healing well within 4 or 5 days, just leave the steri-strips on until they fall off and re-evaluate.

    if you did reach the center that finger will never be the same agian my friend. I did the same to the tip of my pointer finger years ago and sometimes it still hurts in cold weather

    They should stay on for several days, if they come off put more on. Keep it clean and watch for infection.
