  1. I am a new member, 16 years of scleroderma with Raynauds, interstitial lung disease, GERD, ischemic bowel disease, and many more diagnoses. I wanted to respond to the Raynauds with infection (pus) under the nail. In the past, one of my fingers was operated on due to not having enough circulation to the end of the fingertip. The surgeon basically cut all the little nerve endings from the main vein that runs into the finger, allowing one main flow of blood. The surgery seemed to help, but I was told later from my rheumatologist that our fingertips should "auto amputate" which meant to let the finger die on its own. The next time I started having trouble with unhealing tissue at the fingertip I used 1 part hydrogen peroxide and 2 parts warm water and soaked for about 2-3 minutes several times a day. Keeping dry. Over couple weeks I saw results but it took time. I had pus about 2 weeks ago under my nail and I soaked it and my nail looks and feels so much better. I hope this helps. Be patient, keep it covered with dry gauze and I sleep with it uncovered at night. Best of luck. Sandy
