looking for advice on staph infection on finger
I recently got a red swelling on my finger that started to get worse and turn strange colors, and saw a doctor today finally. They lanced and drained the finger, gave me prescription topical antibiotic, and told me to soak it three times a day in hot water, keep changing the dressing on the wound and try to keep it elevated. They were not specific when I asked them about judo and jiujitsu, and refused to give me a guideline for how long to stay out if at all. I resolved to not train for five days to let the finger heal before going back to grappling, but I've now missed one workout and I'm already getting pissed off about not training. Anyone have any bad experience with just taping the **** out of it and training anyway? Right now I'm leaning towards not missing any more workouts this week so i don't go fucking crazy, but I don't want to have to go back to the doctor or **** my finger up worse. I normally train every day except sunday.
All advice and flames much appreciated. I have you bullshido guys to thank for causing me to go to the doctor in the first place, which was clearly the right thing to do since this could have gotten serious if untreated.
