Hi Beth,

Try soaking your finger in a 50% warm water 50% antibacterial soap solution for 15 minutes four times a day. Continue this treatment until the puss resolves. If you have redness that has extended beyond the area just around the nail bed, you should see a doctor for treatment. Please continue to reply with follow-up questions/comments. Thanks!

Hi Beth...how are your fingernails? Getting any better with the soaking method I recommended?
