Infected Finger

So i cut myself about a week ago with my shears .. but i made sure i disinfected it and put a bandaid on it

well it was healing nicely but today there's this big red welt and it hurts so bad! the cut is almost gone though

i've been putting antibiotic ointment on it but is there anything else i can do?

I cut mine bad as well and I bought some zinc oxide and it healed super fast. It also took the pain and burning away immediately.

Agreed. Having your doctor to take a look at it would probably be your best bet.

Go to the doctor. I had something happen to me a few months ago, and suddenly I woke up in the middle of the night in pain, because the infection had swollen up and my finger was throbbing. The doctor put me on antibiotics as it was probably a staph infection. My nail bed got kind of deformed from the swelling and it's taking a long time to grow out. The same thing happened to my son's teacher, as well.

Go to the DR. If its almost healed and NOW there is a big welt and pain, there is a problem.
Red + Pain after a week= Problem

^yup - especially since you cut yourself at work - if you end up with Staph you could find yourself hospitalized for IV meds- you will need to have that covered by insurance.

if it's a money issue - see if the university (with a med school program) nearest you has a clinic.

I'm probably the only person dumb enough to do this, but don't Google image search "infected finger"

OP - in the future you may want to consider going by a "doc in the box" - those urgent care places in malls & grocery stores.

It doesn't matter if you cut yourself at work constantly - infection (as you describe it) doesn't "come with the territory". Employers (should) carry insurance to cover incidents such as this.

I hope you are not cutting hair now - with this infected finger - and potentially infecting your clients.

it's not infected .... no worries AF!! no more postings regarding anything like this...

a simple "put some neosporin on it" did the trick so apparently not as bad as everyone was thinking

it was just getting irritated because my shears were always rubbing against it


over ... nuff said.

2 days ago you had a red painful welt that you were treating with antibacterial ointment, located at the site of a nearly healed wound and you wanted to see a doctor, today you have a blister.

Glad you are better.
