Finger/palm "fungus"??
My wife, age 72, about 3 months ago started having a trouble with the index finger and thumb on the left hand (now on both) which started turning red and skin peeling and now it gets red and raw. She just today found an area on the palm of her left hand, about 1/2 inch wide and 1 inch long that looks like a blister and seems to be spreading. She is pretty much bedridden and cannot leave the house to go to a doctor. She has really bad artheritis in all the joints of her body, plus type II diabites, colon and stomach problems. She is taking Cipro and Zantac for the colon & stomach and is now also dealing with incontenance. She has used different over the counter salves &  lotions, plus a prescription salve that a nurse got for her. Nothing has/is working to clear it up. Some of the salve made it better, not well, but after a week or so, it would come back full strenght. I have heard that soaking the hands in a solution of apple cider vinegar 50% and clorox 50% 9or hydrogen peroxide 50%) twice a day for about 30 minutes each might clear it up. Any suggestions?
