Finger Ow Ow OWW!

This is one painful, infected finger. I fully admit to making the “Ooooooo!” squinchy face the whole time – now let’s see how many other people will admit to the same! LOL! This is just one of those random videos I came across in my playlist collection on YouTube, and once I watched it again – I had to share it!!!

  • Just razor blade that bad boy and be done with it! Let it drain on it’s own every day!
    If it were me, it never would have gotten past “day 1”! A home operation would have taken place already!
    Good grief though! Can you imagine the discomfort and pain?

  • At first I wanted to scream “Just grab some scissors and cut it open already!” Then I saw the dirt under his fingernails and I wanted to scream “Go to the doctor already!!”
    Either way that drip drip drip stuff was driving me nuts.

  • Half Staph, I’m FREELY admidting to the squenchy face of ickyness while he was draining that. Why would someone let that get so inflamed and allow that much puss to get backed up? But good find none the less.

  • Back in 2004 or 2005 I had my second elbow tendon reconstruction on my left elbow. I had the right one done about 6 months earlier; same thing.. I blew out the tendon.

    The right one was painful to recover from ( joint surgeries are horrendous) but I healed up great and went from <20% use of my arm to 100% use.

    The left elbow was taking no prisoners, however. The arm swelled up so badly that I got what is called a Fracture Blister over the surgical wound, which was about 10-12 staples long. The fluid had nowhere to drain to so it pushed it's way out of the tissues.

    The resulting blister looked just like this kids finger but MUCH larger; an oval about 2"x4". Knowing blister fluid to be sterile I tried to keep it intact for as long as possible but the fluid became pus-like and the blister eventually tore open one night while I slept.

    What a mess! I finally had to drain it, but replaced the skin over the wound because it was so large. I irrigated it 2x daily with saline eye wash, kept it covered with neopsporin and clean loose gauze and by the time my 2 week appointment came to have the staples removed it was on it's way to healing.

    The doctor saw the huge raw-looking oval over my surgical site and asked what happened. I told him and he asked me why I did not call Ortho. I told him I did and was told that fracture blisters were common after this surgery.

    He was furious and asked me who I spoke with. Luckily, I'm great with names. Haha. Someone's head rolled that day.

    Anyway, he said he could not have done a better job than I did caring for the wound. Still, but the infection must have gotten deep into the tissues or bone because it took a very long time to heal and every now and again a **ZIT**p with **ZIT** or cloudy fluid comes up on the staple site over the scar. It often itches like crazy.

    Knowing what I had to contend with, I hope this young person got some medical care.
