Paronychia.
  1. #1
    Ian Field Guest

    Default Paronychia.

    With T2; delayed healing/prolonged infection is a concern.

    The infection at the edge of my fingernail was starting to look like it
    might assume the character of an abcess. Iodine reduced the amount of puss
    coming out but didn't clear it up, so I decided to try dressing it with
    magnesium sulphate for a few days to draw it out.

    The puss stopped coming out but the side of my fingertip still seemed
    inflamed, so I tried narrowing the side of the nail with scissors - and
    somehow managed to slice off the whitened skin!

    A reasonably healthy amount of blood emerged and the inflamation seems a
    little less, but just yet its no less painful.

    Wouldn't mind a few tips on how to manage it from here.

    Thanks.

    I'd add some antibioctic cream at some point.

    vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv vvvvvvvvvv

    Its customary to identify the type of infection before resorting to
    antibiotics.

    There's fungal, yeast or herpetic that I've heard of, and I've no idea how
    to identify which.

    Pre diabetes I used to soak my finger or toe in pure methylated spirits
    a couple of times a day. Worked better than anything and faster than
    antibiotics.

    Back in the day the metho or salt water was recommended by doctors lol.
    Along with first piercing the spot where the pus was with a sterilised
    needle (sterilised by burning or dipping in metho )

    You will never guess what epsom salt is!
    I've never heard of putting it on something though.

    It could be staph or strep, too. I managed to get both at once, once. If it
    is either of those you will need antibiotics, not just an antibiotic cream.

    I tend to try the home remedies first and keep an eye it. Very
    occasionally I get streaks develop from an infection site and need to go
    and get antibiotics. The great majority of the time I am fine. Weirdly,
    only hand injuries seem to get infected for me not feet or anywhere
    else.

    "Traditionally, it is also used to prepare foot baths, intended to
    soothe sore feet. The reason for the inclusion of the salt is partially
    cosmetic: the increase in ionic strength prevents some of the temporary
    skin wrinkling ("pruning" partial maceration) which is caused by
    prolonged immersion of extremities in pure water. However, magnesium
    sulfate can also be absorbed into the skin, reducing inflammation."

    >> "I decided to try dressing it with magnesium sulphate for a few days to draw it out."


    It appears Jan used it in its powdered form, or perhaps as a slave?

    We used it as a foot bath, dissolved in water.

    Magnesium sulphate - I've been applying it in paste form to draw it out.

    After a few days application of MS dressings the skin goes translucent
    white, that's the bit I accidentally sliced off when I tried to trim the
    side of the fingernail.

    It bled quite a bit considering the whiteness of the skin, but (non painful)
    fingers crossed it looks like I got most of the infection released.

    small wounds that have become septic.

    The NHS has been ordered to slash costs so the doctors surgery has made it
    near impossible to get an appointment.

    As well as that I try to promote the impression of not making excessive
    demands on the service - the staff are much more caring if they don't
    remember you from last time!

    At this point I've got to the stage its now virtually an open wound that's
    now clean and not showing any obvious inflammation.

    Despite being a pretty jagged chunk of skin missing, its a hell of a lot
    less painful than a few days ago.

    I think it would really be for the best. It's fun to keep poking him
    with a stick, but at the same time, a total lack of attention is
    probably what he really deserves.

    He used to have quite an audience and he really seemed to get off on
    that. Now it's probably time that his daily troll/spamming is only
    received by the sound of crickets.

    Plus it pollutes the newsgroups Chung crosspost spams to. Which
    haven't been completely destroyed by his nonsense the way the
    cardiology group was.

    Perhaps it's time for Andrew B. Chung have a nice long lonely Usenet
    winter.

    Say goodnight, Andy.

    I thought the guy had never heard of a poultice being made from it, as
    opposed to not knowing knowing what epsom salts was. I figured he knew
    what that was just not the fact you could make a poultice out if to be
    used as a drawing ointment.

    Poultices have been made out of everything down through history,
    including mud, urine, dung, and live maggots. As effective as
    epsom salts have been as reported, that's small time stuff compared
    to some of the "natural" products that have been and sometimes still
    are used that way.

    The best I have ever used is sugar and soap. I don't think you really need
    the soap but it does make people feel that the soap somehow helps. Sugar is
    a powerful poultice. It is sometimes used in hospitals, especially for bed
    sores.
