Paronychia Will It Be Fine Without Antibiotics If The Pus Came Out
Yes: As long as source control is achieved (i, e, drainage) and the reason for the infection has been addressed (ingrown nail, others), then your immune system can handle the rest of the infection. Just keep the area absolutely clean and wash your hands. ...Read more
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

If it is a fluid collection, the best treatment is for your doctor to numb and open it. Systemic antibiotics don't really do the trick. You can get redness from yeast, of course. Warm water soaks, see your doctor. ...Read more

Will the pus from a stye drain out with the triple antibiotic ointment or will that make it worse?
