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 weatherSource(s): I cut my own finger years ago to the center

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