Every now and then I have fingertip pain that lasts for a few days that I feel must be related to a finger prick. I have one now and wonder if there is any wisdom about how to clear it away.
I have been looking for signs of infection or any puss forming but I see no visible signs. Its as though a lancet hit a nerve and that nerve just won’t stop complaining about it… During the day when my mind is occupied and I’m busy I hardly notice it (and when I do I just let it go). But at night its persistent enough to keep me from sleeping; I bring an ice pack to bed but once that melts I am awaken by the pain again, so I’m getting poor sleep.
Changed the lancet of course (and I should probably do so more often). Though as I say I don’t think its infected.
