My finger was only getting worse so I went back last weekend to the same medical centre but to a different doctor this time.

* She said the dose of antibiotics the original doctor gave me was grossly inadequate and doubled it.

* She told me to keep my hand elevated so as to reduce swelling. The internet says this too and apparently it is quite important with finger infections because of how constricted the space around the finger is that one should reduce swelling as much as possible. The original doctor never mentioned any of this.

* There was a pocket of pus under the skin clearly visible even when I went to the original doctor but it didn't occur to him that the pus should be drained. The other doctor made an incision and drained the pus.

The wound has now almost healed thanks to the intervention of the second doctor and no thanks to the first doctor.

Another rude thing the first doctor did was he looked at his watch several times during our consult.
