Surgical drainage: Bad paronychia (infections of the skin surrounding a fingernail) often don't respond to antibiotics since the bacteria that are causing it are walled off in an abcess (pus filled balloon). The definitive treatment is surgical, the affected part of the nail or cuticle needs to be opened to allow the paronychia to drain. If that does not help, a portion of the nail can be removed. ...Read more
Red, puffy, irritated: A paronychia is an infection around the cuticle of the finger or toes. It is usually a strep or staph but could be fungal, viral or any number of other microbes. As it heals, it should lose some of the redness, perhaps be a bit shiny, may be swollen, cracked, tender and may still have some pus draining. Wash well, take all of your antibiotics, use some topical antibiotic ointment and follow up. ...Read more
Warm compress: Treatment of acute paronychia without abscess formation includes local care involving warm compresses or soaks up to 3x/day for 20 min. Oral antibiotics may help in more severe cases. Topical antibiotics with or without topical corticosteroids have also been used. If an abscess is present, it needs to be incised and drained. ...Read more
Seldom needs AB: Paronychia seldom needs therapy with antibiotics. Usually frequent hot compresses and soaks will bring it to a head and allow either spontaneous drainage or opening with a blade. If there is extension of the infection beyond the rim of the nail this requires more specific identification of the organism before treatment, but often drugs like clindamycin, Doxycycline and others can be started. ...Read more

5 days on Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for Paronychia. Finger still red, swollen. White and red pus coming out. Is it still infected? Does it mean it is healing?
Paronychia treatment: It sounds like the Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) isn't working if you still have signs of infection - redness, swelling and pus. This means either the bacteria are resistant, there are other bacteria there, or even fungus. You should go back to the doctor who gave you the Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and ask for the next steps - which could mean a localized treatment (cutting the skin or removing the nail). Try to go ASAP since it's 5 days ...Read more

Healing gift: We are all born with a healing gift. When we are young it is much easier to heal and as we get older the healing power of the body somewhat slows down. When we get hurt, or sustain a cut, our body tries to heal by itself except when the injuries are severe and deep and we seek medical care to help and to prevent the complications. But there is still healing there, so enjoy the gift. ...Read more

A scam: It's been around since the 1970's. People want to believe silly stuff. If you're a high-school kid and want to test it in an experiment, fine -- it'll fail.

If you have been defrauded, consider contacting your local district attorney. ...Read more
