I've had an ingrown nail on my finger get infected and then begin to turn a purple-yellow-ish color as well as swell. After a few days, I awoke to my finger throbbing in pain and it had ballooned up to about twice its size in the tip! I read online you could possibly lose your finger if you let it go too long so I went to the doctor and they squeezed the pus out and prescribed me an anti-biotic and pain meds. Funny thing is, I had the same thing happen to two other fingers within the period of about 4 months. Is this normal? Is there some reason why I am experiencing Felon Finger so often? Especially because it's not on the same finger each time it puzzles me...
