and skin. Now it is starting to get red and swollen. It is Sunday. Don't want to bother my doctor. My question: I have some sulfamethoxazole/tmp tablets left over from a urinary infection. Can I use these to kill the infection thats starting to flair up on my finger?

You can take that, but, it is better for other types of infections. Neosporin has a cream with anti biotic and pain relief, even some drug stores have their own brand of it also. Get some of that and use it several times a day. If the pain is really bad, some orajel will help, just don't rub it in your eye. Make sure before you check out that you have the neo cream and not the ointment, you can use the ointment, the cream is just neater. It often gets put in the cream spot on the shelf.
