Thank you. Will savlon cream help.
It might.....Salmon is an antiseptic cream, you need an antibiotic cream e.g chloromycetin.
Chat to your pharmacist for an over the counter antibiotic cream.
Salmon lol...lol....SAVLON.

Thank you is there anything I could do myself at home, it is sore and painful,
Yes, take Ibuprofen 400mgms up to every 4 hours if need be and apply the Savlon.
If there is no improvement by Monday then ring your GP as you may need antibiotics by mouth.

Is there any way I can cut the green bit of my nail.
You've got green nails?.....-;)

It's just a green bit at the side, it's part of the acute paronychia
Leave well alone.
Try soaking your fingers/toes in salty water . Epson Salts are the best , but table salt would do at a push. Vinegar is also a home remedy. Neosporin is an over the counter antibiotic cream. I would advise talking with your local pharmacist at either a chemist or supermarket.
Yes..Neosporin or Bacitracin would do nicely.

Thank you how would an antibacterial cream work
LOL.....Good question....many medics would say that it wouldn't.

Paronychia is caused by a bacteria . Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria are the most common culprits. The clue is in the name, an AntiBIOTIC cream will help kill the bacteria, as will salty water or vinegar.

Thank you so will Epsom salts work, will it get rid if it, how will they work,
Nothing will magically get rid of it and if it doesn't clear up by itself then you need to see a doctor or nurse. Have you self diagnosed or have you had this before? Chronic paronychia can be the result of continued exposure to an irritant or even a fungal infection. Salt or vinegar is a widely used substance to kill or hinder bacteria. Soaking your fingers or toes in Salt or vinegar will not cure your condition but it will make it harder for the bacteria to reproduce, and finally it may resolve on its own. As its inconvenient to go around with your hands in a cup of salty water, the antibiotic cream can be applied, especially at night. If it gets no better I would stronlgy suggest a visit to your GP as you may need a course of amoxicillin/clavulanate.
