well, i had this cut on my hand...it was kinda deep, but i thought it could heal on its own. so almost a week goes by...no pain, until friday morning...it just starts throbbing. went to the hospital, hand is infected. they had to do surgery and clean it out. i had to stay in the hospital all weekend,because it went down to the joint and they had to put me on anti-biotics...well, yah, this sucks ass!
