Infected Hang Nail? Natural way to cure it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if you natural minded mammas have cured/or know how to cure an infected hang nail?

The side of my finger is puffy and alittle clear pus comes out if I push hard on it. (Icky, I know!)

Thanks!

Soak in hot water for 20 minutes, several times a day. Add Epsom salts to the water if you have them.

Maybe dabbing a little tea tree oil on would help too. I second the soaking.

: Salt water soaks have miraculously cleared up a couple nasty looking hangnails that I had with only a few soaks. I just used regular table salt. About 1/4 to 1/2 tsp per cup of warm (as hot as you can stand) water.
