Yellow squashy stuff on the end of a finger….I know what you’re thinking, but it’s not snot. This is a long vid, 9m 30sec, but watching the duration of it is worth it and the reason why can be summed up in one word – layers.
Our fellow followed a common home remedy of mixing salt and water and soaking a wound to help out with infection. If you’ve had a piercing at a piercing parlor using hollow bore needles, your aftercare notes would probably have included a salt water soak to pull out any infection that might begin. But I digress…
This vid starts after the soak and an, um, mechanical approach to the draining begins. Our fellow describes how he was wounded in the first place which is like nails on a chalkboard for me so I can’t repeat it. It tweaks me out more than the pus, but in a way, that makes sense.
The camera work is good. Language is descent. It’s a calm conversation about what is going on – no shrieking at all. And it’s fascinating. Each layer has something special. Enjoy!
P.S. The musical Annie! is playing in the background. It’s a little bonus for fans of show tunes.

“After a week of dealing with a swollen finger(Paronychia) I decided to use epsom salt to draw all of the puss to the surface of the finger, then proceded to puncture the skin to drain the puss.
The Whole procedure was completely painless.”
