quick question about small finger wound

I feel a bit silly asking about something so little but I seem to be getting one thing after the other at the moment.

I got a small scrape on my finger on Saturday in the garden. One of those little lift the flap ones. The skin came off that night. It started weeping a bit Sunday, but just clear normal weeping. It dried up a bit but this morning it's all weepy again - yellow and looks like an ulcer.

I've only just finished antiobiotics for a chest infection on Monday. Surely this can't be infected. Is it normal for things to be extra slow. Can I treat it myself somehow? If I ignore it, will it magically go away? I really don't want to bother the gp for something so little.

I have always found salt water soaks to help, with the disclaimer of watching for streaks of red inflammation upwards of the would.

Sorry, wound.

I'll try that smile thanks!

Hope it gets better soon.
