I have a infected thumb - got antibotics yesterday, doesn't feel as sore but obviously still infected - what do I do with it?! Leave it or poke it so the puss comes out?! envy (sick - not envy!) forgot fo ask the doctor yesterday although he was impressed I hadn't touched it!

First photo is from almost two weeks ago with just the cut, second photo is today.

Soak and film pop it. And we have our own corner now-we'd be really enthralled concerned to see if it's ok.

Omg pop it!!

Oooooh that's a popper!

Excellent 😀

Glad your be so concerned Slinky! 😂

It now doesn't hurt and I can actually bend it, it's become quite a part of me and I have worry when I go to bed it may pop in my sleep 😱
Have reported my thread to get it moved in the right section

Pop it pop it pop it!!!
But yes, get some one to film it, or take photos at each stage ;)

You have to pop it. Don't tease us like this! Get a camera & a sterilised needle, stat!

Slinky where is the corner? I've been everywhere looking for it?

In the club Sporner Corner

Pop it before the antibiotics get rid of all the good stuff grin

God, so tiny cuts like that do actually get infected. I thought it was just a rumour!

Hi all - we'll pop this over to Sporner's Corner now.

PippaPug Tue 12-Apr-16 12:31:15

That's Becca!

I can't easily pop it and no one else will want too, so I'm guessing just poke it with something sharp?!

Any update op?

PippaPug Wed 13-Apr-16 21:33:49

That is beautiful! Thanks for the photos.

I'm amazed it didn't burst when you bent your thumb to be honest!

PippaPug Wed 13-Apr-16 21:39:06

It popped today as I bent my thumb - I heard a little crackling noise so I touched it and the puss started to seep out so I thought you may want photos!
Photos are in the order it all happened, the pressure which it has released is amazing but left a hole in my thumb!
