Soak it in warm water with episom salts as often as possible and put some antibiotic ointment w/ bandage. It workes for me. If not better in 24hrs i would see a dr about getting some medication.

What always worked for me is soaking the finger in a warm epsom salt solution for a few minutes, then gently pressing on it. If it is ready to expel pus, it will come right out. If not, wait another day and try again. Don't really measure but about 2 or 3 tablespoons to a cup of water.

Epsom salts will pull out infection from wounds. I mixed it about 1/2 cup to 1 quart of hot water. Submerge infected area in solution 4 times a day. If unable to submerge area, just use washcloth to dip in solution and apply over infected are (hot compress method) 4 times a day. I have seen this cure infection after red streak was running up arm (indicative of blood poisoning). No antibiotics were needed. I have many times bathed in 1-2 cups epsom salts in hot bath when muscles or nerves said "help". You really feel relaxed. I have used a saturated solution of ACV - epsom salts to clear up deep infected ulcers in scalp. No antibiotics were needed. Swab ulcers.
