I got a felon in my right thumb three months

I got a felon in my right thumb three months ago. There still appears to be fluid in the lower portion of the thumb. I previously had the finger incised and drained and took Bactrim. Does this sound like another draining is necessary or is three months normal for healing?

Hi. My boyfriend noticed a small thumb sized dent on my right hip/butt cheek. I don t know how it got there. Its a bit lighter in color in the center of the dent then my regular skin tone. It didn t hurt or anything but I think I may have had a bruise there a few months ago

The thumb on my right hand is a little bit numb after using scissors for countless hours on Thursday. I m only 15 so I don t think it s too serious. It got a little better on Friday. But now it feels bad again. Should I wait to see if it will get better or see a doctor immediately?
