what's wrong with my finger?
About two days ago when I went to get something out of my pocket. I ripped off about the corner of my nail off, and ever since then it's been hurting really badly, and it seems like it is getting worse I can even use it and every time something touches it I scream! There is a scab where the cut was, and it seems that it's getting hard around where the wound is. And, from time to time yellow puss (and sometimes blood) will come out. Could this mean that it's infected? I hope not..
Additional Details
well i also think the scab is making it worse n it seems that im getting a new scab uner the old scab due to re opening after hurting it by people or things bumping into it. anyways should i take the scab off n the clean it and re cover it, or just leave it alone?

I would clean the area the best you can......grab some neosporin to dab on it, and wrap it in a big bandaid. Then set an apt with your family doc so he can look at it. If you cannot see the doc soon, change your bandaid and neosporin twice to three times daily untill you can get in to the doc.

Your finger is definetely infected.The yellow puss is the sign of infection.Put some anti-bacterial cream on it, constantly, and keep it clean. Cover if neccesary.

♥Amber is a New Momma
It sounds infected.
You should see the doctor asap.

its infected but its a minor infection. use neosporin and cover it with a bandaid so nothing will touch it. dont over react because it happens. if something starts spreading around your finger and you start to not feel well go to a doctor right away. two days doesn't sound bad though so cover it up and use antibiotic ointment preferably neosporin. when you switch bandaids which should be around every couple hours, check for that puss again and wipe it up with rubbing alcohol swabs or a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol. after you clean it up with that, maybe let it dry if you aren't doing anything and relax for maybe half an hour without touching it. then back with the neosporin and bandaid. do this for a day and then let it dry after you take the bandaid off in the morning. keep it on while you sleep to keep it safe from sudden movements when you sleep haha

if after 3 days it is not healing and considering the yellow puss it sounds like an infection. With infections this small you can treat it w/ an anti-biotic cream but BE SURE to keep it covered w/ a bandage to keep it moist and soft and that will keep it from hurting.

why ?
Judging by the description you gave I think its infected or needs to be better treated put some cream, bandaids stuff like that and it should get better. If that doesn't work then you should see a doctor about it...that should help.. Hope your finger gets better soon!

oh. ur not infected. I would say you should go to the doctors though. Just put like medicine on it.

it is infected, squeeze out the puss and stick it in some rubbing alcohol

sounds like it is infected, my friend.

Jennifer B
chances are yes it is infected clean it and put antibateria cream on it and cover you should be fine

Get to a doctor. The pus means it is infected. You will probably need antibiotics. But if you leave it, you could get blood poisoning.

Edit: DON'T use neosporin ointment. The ointment will block the air from getting to the wound and make the infection far worse. You can soak the hand in betadine solution diluted in warm (I personally prefer hot) water, diluted to a weak tea color. Soak your hand for at least 10 minutes. Then get to the Dr. tomorrow. If you have any red lines in your finger or hand radiating outward, get to the ER right away, that is the sign of blood poisoning.

clean it with alcohol and slap some neosporin on it

Brittni M
it may be infected, but not a very serious infection... i have had one like that. i just put a band aid on it, and my mom said that if it got worse she take me to the doctor

it might be infected, but depending on how far down the nail you got cut, it might just be the healing process. the best thing you can do for it would be to wash it carefully with rubbing alcohol (it will sting tho) and put neosporin and a band-aid on it. if it's really deep you might need stitches (but i doubt it's that deep). just don't mess with it and keep it clean and covered. for pain you can try putting something cold on it or taking pain reliever.

mom says i am a good guy
just go to the doctor :P

it sounds like it, head to your doc tommorow

you might wanna cut off your finger, so you don't get cancer.

Mr. Reality
It is indeed infected and you need to seek medical assistance

Sounds like it is infected. Keep Bacitracian on it and a bandaid and watch yourself for a fever, if it is infected you will run a fever. Call your doctor, you might not have to go in and see him/her but its always good to let them know what is going on, they might be able to suggest somethings you can do to help yourself too.

Yes, anytime puss is involved it is an infection.

Diane S
See a doctor, they will probably give you some anti-biotics. In the mean time you might consider putting some neosporin on it.

Joey P
it is infected. You should go to a doctor or something. (?)
