whitlow problem

Postby WonderWoman » 28 Dec 2009, 19:36

i have a small absess on my left thumb, my mum calls it a whitlow. Its raised up and seeps pus and its recurring every 4/5 wks. I wear leather gloves when boxercising. Is this hindering it frm being cleared up? A bread poltice helps bring the pus out.
