my sons pointer finger on his left hand the part right above the nail blister filled with white puss and was swollen and red. we drained the puss and cleaned the area, but it has remained red and swollen and the nail has stoped growing. He does not have any pain, but it has only gone down a little but it has not really gotten worse except for the nail is not growing. The nail has not fallen off but has not produced any more nail. He does bite his nails and I get on to him all the time for it, we wash our hands all the time. HELP
