I'm VERY sorry to hear of the problem that you are having with your thumb nail. You MUST go to the Doctor IMMEDIATELY - whether that is YOUR own Doctor or a Walk-In Clinic OR the ER. You DEFINITELY have a VERY severe infection and YOU need to get medical help IMMEDIATELY!!!
PLEASE DON'T WAIT because this is a VERY bad infection to be doing this to your thumb and it can spread!!!!
I HOPE that you will update us AFTER you have been to the Doctor TODAY....Sherry
