MY FINGER GOT CHICKEN POO IN IT, AND WHEN I HAVE CHICKENS I HAVE TO WORK ALL THE TIME, NO BREAKS TIL THEY ARE PICKED UP BY COMPANY. MY FINGER GOT INFECTED, I WENT TO DOCTOR 3 WEEKS AGO AND GOT ANTIBIOTICS, 2 KINDS, AND A SHOT, WAS OFF WORK FOR 7 DAYS, THEN HAD TO GO BACK, NOW MY FINGERNAIL IS ABOUT TO FALL OFF AND MY JOB REQUIRES I PICK UP CHICKENS DAILY, NIGHTLY, 24/7 AND MY FINGER IS NOT HEALING. BEFORE ANTIBIOTICS, I HAD PUS, AND FINGER WAS DISCOLORED AND SWOLLEN HORRIBLY, NOW SOME SWELLING, BUT REALLY SORE, AND FINGERNAIL IS JUST KIND OF HANGING ON. I HAVE BEEN SOAKING IT IN WARM SALT WATER, WITH A BIT OF VINEGAR. I AM AFRAID I WILL HAVE TO MISS A COUPLE WEEKS WORK IN ORDER TO LET THIS HEAL COMPLETELY, WHAT CAN I DO, I REALLY CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS, BUT I CANNOT AFFORD FOR MY FINGER TO FALL OFF EITHER, I STILL HAVE ABOUT 3 DAYS LEFT ON MY ANTIBIOTICS.
