Cuticle infection

DS was dx with a mild cuticle infection.
He has had it for five days now and it hasn't gotten better with muripursin .

So...
Keflex for 10 days .
Waiting for Rheumo and GI to approve him to get Mtx and humira this week.
I assume it will be ok but was told to wait for the doc....
Mtx is due Thursday and humira Friday .

Add in the fun of figuring out miralax etc... While on abx .

Ughh...Hope it all works out and clears up fast. C used to pick at his cuticles and it would become inflamed. It hasn't happened in awhile.

That was the freaky part the skin is not broken at all no extra cuticle hang nails nothing.
The ped thought he may have jammed his finger on something which moved the skin back just enough to let stuff in

Hope it clears up quickly. We had something similar happen to Caitlyn a long while back. I remember she needed antibiotics and it finally cleared up. Hopefully it will do the trick for him!

Hope it looks better today. They gave the same reason for going forward with Jack's infusion. Last antibiotic down this morning for us
