    blister or scar formation?

    A couple months ago I had an accident in which I cut the skin of my fingertip off with a knife. The wound appears to be healed now but the tip of my finger remains sensitive and it feels a little puffy and swollen, sort of like there is a blister there.

    I am wondering if it is normal for a blister to form like this as part of the healing process of a deep wound? Or is what I feel more likely to be newly formed scar tissue? If so, how long does the sensitivity of the new tissue generally last?

    Thanks for your feedback.
