My 4 1/2 year old son has an infected cuticle on his thumb. His thumb is really red and swollen and there's a 'pimple-like' bump of pus on the thumb by the fingernail. Only a minimal amount of pus has come out. He doesn't suck his thumb or bite his nails, although I suspect he probably had a hang nail that he pulled off.

Any suggestions?
