Ring got in contact with a car battery, causing circumferential burn to the fourth finger! 💍

Luckily the finger recovered, the injured skin was covered with a skin graft, but due to injured digital nerves, sensations were lost. Electrical burns associated with rings are usually deep second-degree burns which may leave scars, cause loss of hair follicles and sweat glands, leave permanent skin pigmentation and may need skin grafting. The outcome depends on the severity of damage to the underlying tissue especially digital blood supply.
