    Question Infected Fingers

    My DD has an infected finger on her right hand, the ring finger. It was green and filled with that mucky pus stuff, but she fell and it sort of exploded. Now, it is red, a little bruised looking and got some more green stuff happening.
    Should I see if it will heal itself or take her to the doctors?

    Both DH and I suffered from infection on our fingers, right near the nails, just like hers, when we were little kids. I never went to the doctor for them though. DH did a few times because they swelled to double the size.

    One of my friends daughters had this when she was a couple of weeks old, the only thing that got rid of it was antibiotics. So I'd take her to the Dr and get it checked out.

    My DS used to get this.. It seemed to be from the little cuticles coming away from his soft baby nails.. I too took him to the GP and was given an antibiotic cream.
