    Im shaking and crying ,
    ellas birthmark has been giving a funny smell for the past 3 days ( i wash her and then it comes back) i just thought it was milk that got into the bits beween her fingers ( she sucks her thumb after a bottle )
    She always has a sore between one finger as thats the one thats swollen out and it cracks when it get even alittle dry. But i have been so busy i didnt really inspect and its infected as its pusy and thats what the smell was.

    im going to take her to the docs tomorrow i have only just noticed it.

    She wont die will she cos its infected ? She wont need to have an amputation will she ??? Im scared and i crying as she is in pain with it :cry::cry::cry:

    Hey chick, didnt want to read and run.

    If you're that worried then take her to A&E-i would. then you'll get an instant answer. Id think they'd just clean it up and give her some antibiotics-but im not a doctor so I dont know.

    Good Luck-will be thinking of you both

    or call NHS direct. You'll prob need antibiotics or something. But i'd call them I think. Ted gets sore and smelly in his neck where milk gets in his fatty bits. But it's never got pussy. Call NHS direct adn see how urgent they'd think it was, and maybe give her some paracetamol/calpol for the pain? good luck.

    Oh sweetie :hugs: :hugs:

    Now listen to me, calm down nothing awful is going to happen

    You can bathe it in a salt water solution or TCP solution as someone suggested, it won't do her any harm at all.
    Is it weepy or is it more like a blister with pus in it?

    If it is a blister type then bathing may help with the pain as it will feel quite tight to her, it may brst but if it does don't panice just keep bathing it

    When you go to the doctors they will probably tell you to bathe it and keep it clean and my give her some amoxycillin

    I'm sorry darling i've forgotton, how old is she? and where is her birthmark? on her finger?
    If she is in pain with it you can always give her a little calpol to soothe her

    :hugs:

    Awwww hun, just stay calm dont get yourself worked up, nothing is going to happen to your princess (sorry one of your princesses) most likely a simple infection which can be treated with antibiotics. You silly moo you almost have me crying now I just want to come and give you a big cuddly hug. Honestly hun she will be fine, like the other ladies said if it seems like she is in pain give her some calpol and maybe bath it in salt water, salt water works wonders.

    Did they ever give you information on that birthmark? Or if it would be removed or fall off at some point?

    Good luck at the doctors tomorow. Dont worry, it wont become that bad in one night to need it amputated.

    :hug:

    Oh sweetie please don't cry :hugs:

    Bathe it that is all you can do for the moment, just try and clean it out as much as you can
    I wouldn't cover it as it could make it more weepy

    So bathing it in salt water will be totally fine? As its aload of blood vessels and its opened so it will get inside? It wont do any damage??

    Thanks btw :hugs:
