[ - ] DS got a hangnail that he picked at and now his finger is red and swollen. I had him soak it in warm soapy water last night, and have been putting Neosporin on it and keeping it bandaged. Still looking swollen and now I'm thinking we'll have to go to the urgent care center this weekend? (His ped doesn't have weekend hours, and of course stuff like this always comes up right before the weekend!). Anyone have experience with this and can tell me if it is or isn't necessary to take him in tomorrow? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not a doctor, but much experience with hangnails. It's going to take more than a day to heal. 1) Clean with alcohol 2) Cut any excess skin of the hangnail off with cuticle cutters. If you leave the skin hanging off there is a good chance that their is bacteria or some sort of irritant still in the wound. 3) Apply neosporin 4) don't bandage, just let it heal on its own by allowing it oxygen. If that doesn't work after 2 or 3 days see a doctor. [ Reply | More ]

This happened to my DS also, but the swelling was on his cuticles. Went to urgent care, who were scared to lance it so they sent me to plastic surgeon. He lanced it, gave me script for antibiotic cream, told me to soak it, and left with a $700 bill. Keep an eye on it, see if the pharmacist can recommend a cream, and if not better by Monday go to urgent care. [ Reply | More ]

I am more concerned about his relationship with the people he is supposed to represent. Does he really believe that we need more guns in school?

I agree but it is all part of the same personality. Cruz is willing to say and do anything to please powerful people who are nasty and right wing. He will debase himself if they demand it and sell out Texans if they demand it. I mean, Trump publicly said Cruz dad helped kill JFK and now Cruz keeps saying that Trump is so honest that he must do anything Trump wants and no questions must ever be asked of Trump. And yes, since Trump and the NRA and Russia like having armed people and innocent young children, concert goers, or people in the homes who are African-American who get killed is just the price we pay for "freedom".

ITTA. I thought the same thing. Every time I see the byline at the NYT "Michael S. Schmidt" I know that it is going to be a direct leak from the Trump administration with their slant. Schmidt depends on the Trump administration for his career and he is the most gullible reporter when it comes to it but the ideal stenographer for them. I think Trump laughs at him and makes fun of him all the time, but flatters Schmidt to his face and he feels like an "insider". Schmidt should learn some lessons in real reporting from Bob Woodward. He got leaks but he wasn't one of the lazy ones who was satisfied with his "scoops" spouting the line of the people in power. [ Reply | More ]
