Finger red warm, swollen, hangnail infection, had warm soaks, used Epsom salt

Hello my finger has been swollen for the past few 5 or 6 days and it is red warm and swollen. I have been doing warm soaks with Epsom salt to help to soothe it. I assume that I had a hangnail and it got infected but my finger went down for like a day and then the next day it sewelled up almost immediately . Prom is coming up, do you recommend me to get my nails done anyways ?

Hi welcome to HCMForum . you had swelling of finger & with pus discharge. the treatmeent is to drain the pus completely and use medicines to treat the infection. I advise you to consult a surgeon to do the procedure. I advise you some diet recomendations besides treatment. dont eat cereals, potato , other tubers, and fish which are supposed to increase the pus formation. wishing for an early recovery.
