The tip of my finger is swollen with puss. I heated a towel in the microwave and wrapped it around my finger. Some puss came out. What should I do, What is it?
The symptoms of swollen finger finger with pus suggests that it may be paronychia or abscess formation.
Paronychia is a skin infection that causes pain and swelling around the fingernail or toenail.
Give hot fomentation 4 -5 times a day and squeeze all the puss out of your finger.Put antibiotic ointment and take a course of oral antibiotics.
If it worsens,consult your doctor.
