Re: We had our first ER visit, questions about antibiotics too

Thanks everyone. This wasn't our pedi that treated her last night, and if it was I don't think she would have prescribed them. The skin is missing a little lower then half way down on the side and far enough on the top of the finger to barely catch the corner of her nail. I guess the other thing that is making me think of wait and see is that my DH cut the end of his finger off and grazed the one next to that, his fingers looked like hamburger meat and they just cleaned an bandaged it.

I dont know. I would use the cream for sure. I would just watch it super close like the pp said a staph infection can happen so fast and thats 100x worse kwim
so if you see any change id give the antibiotics

After changing her bandage I decided to defiantly give the antibiotics. Her finger is still very raw and oozing . It could very easily get infected and I do not want that to happen.

Poor baby. Glad you are giving her the antibiotics. I would ALWAYS give them in these cases. Too much risk not too with yucky oozy wounds.
