My 3 year old daughter got her pinky finger closed in the door last night. It broke the skin. We took her to urgent care and they did an x-ray. While waiting for the results, the tech said that if there was a fracture they would put her on antibiotics. The way I understood it, they would skip the antibiotics if there was no fracture.
She ended up having a hairline fracture and is now on Keflex. Why would they only prescribe the antibiotics if the bone was broken?
