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.
