: My ring finger nail was ingrown causing pus to build up and swell up to the left of the nail. I cut the nail away from the sore, and cut open the pus bag with a razor blade, I got most of it out, I covered it with Icthammol Ointment ( Black Save/tar stuff ) . My first question is Should I leave it un-covered? and my second is Is there anything else I can do?
I'm not a doctor, but I would get an antibiotic to treat either externally or with an oral prescription. Depending on what type of work you do, I'd also think you'd want to cover that to protect it from further infection. My 2 cents.
