Im glad you went and got it checked out. But honestly that doctor sounds horrible. Take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon.

I recommended the home approach because I knew exactly what the Dr would do. Same thing was done to my daughters finger last week because we couldn't get the infection under control at home. If you can, try not to let something like that get so out of hand. Often if you soak an abcess in boiled, salted water, it will burst on it's own, and the water softens it enough so that you need less pressure to empty it. Salt also helps draw out the infection, whilst helping to kill germs.
If you started treating this early, you might have avoided antibiotics and a doctors visit. Glad it is sorted now op, make sure you take the full course of antibiotics.

You poor thing, that must absolutely kill! I'm glad you ended up going to the Dr as it sounded a bit too far gone to be attempting to drain it yourself. You'll feel heaps better once the antibiotics get into your system and start working on the infection.
Just try and rest and do as little as possible until you start to feel better. You'll be right hun.

Ouch that must have hurt so much! Glad you went to the doc.
Just as far as the anaesthetic goes, it is very painful to numb fingers as you need a ring block. Basically two or more injections at the base of the finger. And very painful.
So I think you were better off the way the doc did it. Still b@@dy hurts though!
