When repairing an apartment, I accidentally injured my finger with glass, and a small piece remained inside. After a while the finger became festering. Having understood what was the reason, she took out the glass with grief in half, rinsed it with peroxide and bandaged, but the suppuration did not pass. In the pharmacy the pharmacist advised tetracycline ointment, bought a tube of 15 g. I applied three times a day, and I felt the change on the second day - the wound ceased to rot and after a week was fully delayed, after which it was no longer sensible to smear. Svetlana, Podolsk
