Mumsnetters aren't necessarily qualified to help if your child is unwell. If you have any serious medical concerns, we would urge you to consult your GP.

So, you know when your figer gets infected around the nail and it all goes white and gunky....

... whats the solution? This one is a stubborn one! I've bathed it, squeezed a bit out, poulticed it, everything. Alot of gunk has come out, but there's tons left by the look of it. ds1 is screaming in agony whenever its touched.

doctors and antibiotics I'm afraid. I left mine "well it's only a sore finger" - and went to the docs when it felt pretty much like it was about to drop off, went in all apologetic for wasting their time on a sore finger, dr went nuts and said I should have been there a week earlier before it got hideously infected blush That was me told OFF... so get thee and the ds to the doctors asap.

Yeah, I guess so. I dont ever remember going to gp as a kid though, only my Mum sorting it out!

The doc made an incision in Ds1's, got all the stuff out and dressed it. DS said the pain went immediately.

Here you need some gauze to fasten over it aswell.
