used the ones over the counter. right now it hasn't grown any larger. i have been cleaning it every day and keeping it as protected as possible. hitting it puts me in a chair for a spell. its very tender. it is starting to scab on the surface. i keep checking my finger. my nail isn't bothered by it. only where it sits on the skin. if it doesn't get better soon then i will have to make a run to the dr for it. cant keep a band aid on it forever. thanks for replying.View Thread
I thought it was a wart at first and did those freeze treatments. All 14 of them. I have tried everything. It is about the size of a northern bean right now. It got larger a few days ago with a white top on it but it started bleeding and so I pulled the top layer off . Now it's a red bulge on the side of the nail on my pinky finger. It's very tender, to the point if you mess with it I get nauseous . I soak it every day in peroxide and put a fresh bandaid over it since the pain at touching it makes me want to hurl. Any ideas as to what this could be since a wart is not my option.View Thread
