One thing that’s never a waste of time, besides reading my enthralling blog, is learning as much as you can about pharmacology for those times when seeing a doctor is impractical and no one else seems to be bothering with prescritptions.
In times like that, it’s good to have a good friend who’s also a qualified nurse. Shout out to ya, S.Gal ;)

And wipe away all that nasty-but-cool yellow pus. Keep it as clean as possible, and exposed to air at night when you’re asleep or unlikely to knock it on anything (trust me, that kills). Then you want to get some of this anti-inflammatory stuff, ibuprofen.
Three or so of those a day and you’re golden. Hell, I even play squash with this gaping toe wound and it seems to be healing up nicely – AND my game’s improved outta sight :D
Check it out, nice and clean:
