this sounds serious

radical mastectomy on that side means you have had the lymph nodes removed from your arm pit

why are you immunocompromised.

it sounds like you may need to go to a wound care clinic to make sure your fingers heal up

it is going to take you longer to heal because of your prior history.

you should get cultures to check for MRSA again on your hands

you could be having psoriasis on your hands and fingers possibly

can you upload a clear photo of your hands?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
