:eek: I pinched my thumb two weeks ago along with a nasty scrape around the base of my fingernail. I put antibiotic ointment with a bandaid on after I washed it and poured hydrogen peroxide on the wound. I've been doing this daily for 11 days. :confused: Now it appears to be getting "eaten up" around the fingernail with discharges of pus and blood. Some mentioned I might have a splinter under the skin, but I don't see one. I have a docter's appointment, but I have a feeling this doctor is going to say it's infected and tell me to do the same things I've been doing. Any suggestions?
