Bloody puncture at top of thumb, blood under nail, from a fork. Washed immediately, 6 times with soap+alcohol+betadine. How can I tell if infected?
When there's pus: Depending on what was on the fork, and the fact that it's metal, means making sure that you've had a tetanus booster. Also, with the puncture you are going to experience pain and throbbing. So if there's any signs of swelling or inflammation, or the skin is red, it needs medical attention. If it's a deep puncture, and you irrigated and applied soap, you still may need to see a doctor to start oral antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I've had a dark brown area under my toe nail (which I was assuming was blood) for 3 months now no improvement. Takes up half toe nail. Treatment?
Not Toe-late Yet.: Unfortunately, there is no way to render an effective treatment without knowing what the cause of the brown is. As you may already know, it can be only one off several different things. It is either blood, bacteria, fungus, dirt or a type of melanoma. Now that you know the options, you need to be examined. With the possibility of melanoma on the list, I would not delay the examination too long. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
