Last night I thought the finger looked much better. The blister was no bigger and the swelling went down. This morning, the blister was gone. I had to go to the doctor for something else and as I was driving, I realized the tip of that finger was tingly. When I looked at it, there was a blistery like thing forming at the cuticle and the joint was again swollen.
I was glad I was already going to the doctor because I doubt that I would have gone for just the finger but she was concerned and gave me antibiotics to take for a week.
You can see that the swelling in the joint was down from yesterday but it’s swollen back up this afternoon. The doctor told me to soak it in Epsom Salt water three times a day for 15 minutes and to dab it with apple cider vinegar as that may be helpful with a staph infection.
So . . more antibiotics. The pharmacist said “Are you still taking antibiotics?” I told him I hadn’t had them for probably 20 years and I think this is the 5th time I’ve had them since about March. Not good!
