He has an infected finger. He only showed us today, it's been there since yesterday apparently.
It's red and swollen with a big pis filled spot in the middle. It's fab to look at but it's hurting him so much, he won't let me near it!
After about an hour of bribery and explainations about why the pus needs to come out, for medical reasons not for my pleasure
He finally let me take a sterile pin to it, as it was the least painful option. We did it, the pus squirted out, it was beautiful. But there's still some in there! He's refusing to squeeze it out himself.
I'm desperate to get my hands on it, but it hurts him so bad!
I've settled for magnesium sulphate and a plaster overnight. Hopefully that'll work and hopefully as he grows older her will discover the joys of pus filled fingers!
