Whitlow is Caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), herpetic whitlow occurs mostly on the fleshy part of the index finger or thumb. Sometimes herpetic whitlow can develop on the toes.

Symptoms of whitlow
Timing : The first symptoms usually appear 2-20 days after the person is exposed to the herpes simplex virus.

Sensation: The infected area will burn or tingle, and the person may begin to experience pain before any noticeable lesion shows up.



Infection :  The finger will then begin to swell and redden as the infection develops. Blisters will appear and begin to fill with liquid or pus.

There maybe just one blister, or a group of them may develop. They are typically small and very painful when touched.

Rupture: These blisters will then burst and scab over in the weeks to come. Once the scabs heal, the infection returns to its dormant state.
Other symptoms may appear at any time during the infection, including:
swollen lymph nodes in the armpits or elbow area
a fever


red marks surrounding or leading away from the whitlow.





I want to make this look simple and short, even at taking antibiotics whitlow can still take time before healing, but I’m going to share a very fast tip to aid  a rapid healing to whitlow.

Here we Go:

Do you know that whitlow hates heat!?
Yes it does and that is one of its weaknesses,
If you are a whitlow victim, this is what you have to do.

What to do
1. Boil a hot water,

2. Allow the boiled hot water to cool abit (it still have to be hot, but not too hot)

3. Pour out half glass cup of the hot moderate hot water, Then add a table spoon of salt to the hot water

Note: do not open the whitlow blisters

4. Now dip your affected finger into the hot water and salt combination.

Do this twice a day and see the magic, the pus in the whitlow will start draining out on it’s own, because salt was present in the hot water as salt kills bacteria so as hot water too.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of
your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
