I may have cut myself, I don’t know whether to go to my doctor’s office for this or not?

This is kind of embarrassing! This morning, I accidentally sat on a glass picture frame and cracked the glass. I was just wearing pajamas at the time. I could see no cuts or blood at all, but my bottom still feels sore. I applied antibiotic cream to it, but it still hurts. Could there be tiny pieces of glass embedding that I don’t see, and wouldn’t it cause bleeding? I don’t know whether to go to my doctor’s office for this or not. Can you give me some advice?

Age: 59
Medications: Just over the counter stuff, advil or tylenol occasionally.
General Information: Just have soreness, and wondered it this is just from sitting on the frame and bruising myself, or if there could be glass under my skin.

Based on your info probably just bruising, but best to have a friend or family member help you look at this. Check for any possible glass remains or injury. Especially no injury to the rectal area. The area should be kept clean. Soreness should subside. If you have doubts you can consult.

Thanks for the query..

Well, as it was not a bare contact and your pyjama was there so chances of small pieces of glass embedding the skin is very less..

Slight injury can cause soreness but it does not mean tgat glass pieces are embeded as ot would be painful to sit if glass pieces would have embeded.

Yes, you can however once get it checked so a small doubt can also be eliminated..

Hope this helps..
