A Small, Painful Yellow Lump Between The Index Finger And Thumb?
Initially between the fingers of my right hand between the index finger and thumb there was a small yellow lump but it didn’t hurt when touched then a few hafi then the lump turned to pain, finally in the afternoon my hand was a bit swollen then over time I gave wasp oil, it swelled up, and my hand it was difficult to use, then after that it was very red, then I gave black ointment the next morning which was red, in the middle there was a yellow color like pus, then I complied with warm water that the hands started to be moved a little bit not too painful, and the swelling subsided a bit, but the small swelling that was yellow in color turned out to be a little big filling like pus, from the beginning it didn’t feel itchy, a little painful, and warm, I’m 20 years old, so now what should I do so that the pus-like lump can come out? Thank you
Inflamed lumps under the skin are commonly referred to as boils, where a white-yellow boil indicates the appearance of pus, which is produced by the body's immune system fighting the bacterial infection process. If boils arise, you should not just apply something to the inflamed area because it often does not get positive benefits but causes the condition to get worse.
If the boil gets bigger and bigger, there is a risk of causing an abscess, which is a large collection of pus. You should see a doctor to get proper treatment, either in the form of sterile discharge, anti-inflammatory drugs or antibiotics.
Here's a suggestion for you:
Maintain hygiene by washing your hands frequently. Avoid touching or squeezing the bumps frequently. Compressing the area of the lump with clean warm water or rivanol so that the lump can quickly burst and the pus will come out on its own. Avoid unsterile popping the lump yourself. If the pus comes out on its own, clean it with sterile gauze and alcohol, then apply an antibiotic ointment obtained by prescription to prevent re-infection.
