I'm generally the same way. It's disturbing to see people just popping pills for every minor problem they have. All the big scare over bacteria in the air "onoes! Gotta get fucking lysol sanitizing spray because my kid sneezed then touched the door handle!!!!". It's ridiculous. America is generally a big pussy about such issues, and I totally understand (and agree with) your stance for wanting to resist that lifestyle.

But really -- there are limits. You can suffer for months with a nasty infection like the one you've got, and risk it turning into something very serious. Or you could go to the doctor, get a shot, and be 100% better in a few days. I mean it's not like the doc is going to dope you up or anything, he's just going to kill the infection and clean up the wound.

I say go to the doc. You won't regret it afterwards.

If you're that effin worried about it, go see a goddamn doctor. It'll take less than an hour (in most cases) and then you know if it's infected or not, and probably get some kind of fucking medicine for it.

Get a bucket of acetone and plunge your wrist into it. It may hurt like fuck but I guarantee it'll kill any infection and cauterize the wound.

worked when i cut off the tip of my left ring finger

This actually could work. I'm sure he's already taken care of it, but if you can't afford a doctor or something, it could be an option in the case of an infection.

Make sure, even if the bottle says 100% acetone, that it doesn't have Bitrex (Denatonium Benzoate) in it though, which is notable for being the most bitter substance on Earth and probably would make the acetone burning even worse.

Cut a nasty hunk of skin off of my finger on the treater *prepreg maker* and the guys told me to just put my finger in the 5 gallons bucket of acetone. They didn't mention any pain from this and I was new. Well through the plate glass and over the sound of a 120 dbl machine and in another plate glass enclosed room 30 ft from me they heart my scream. Yeah just one, it lasted close to 5 seconds and was louder than fuck but it was good for a laugh. Sure broke up the boredom of that 12 hr shift for me. <img src=smilies/cwm11.gif>

Yep, the pain sucks but its better than having your finger or hand rot off slowly over a period of time.

Iodine works too and it's probably easier to find and cheaper. Stings like a bitch though.

iodine won't cauterize which is the main point of the acetone

He said stings like a bitch, if he tried the acetone instead he'ld think the sting from iodine was nothing compared to it. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
