Is it swollen up as big as the toe? Is it a rash ugly red? Has it stopped throbbing? Do you still scream like a little girl when you dip it in perioxide?

I'm laughing. I'm probably the only crazy person here that wants to look!

for the finger, see if you can find some 'Polysporin' and apply a coat, then cover with a waterproof band aid each night when you go to bed.
let the band aid fall off the next morning if it wants to.

I went to the doctor today. It just wasn't getting better. Even with a constant Antibac cream. The infection was deep and needed attacking from the inside. I got antibiotic tablets. Seems to be getting a little better already. Thanks for following, dorf dude...

I've been following for a while and I am very impressed. Stone work always make me nervous. As for the peroxide, I found just recently it is a very good agent for sterilizing stuff because it kills everything living. Unfortuneatly, this also means your skin. so while dipping it in peroxide kills the germs it touches it also kills the exposed skin that is trying to start the healing process. Turns out it actually can prolong the healing process. The things you learn after doing it most of your life. "Get a cut/scrape use peroxide to clean the wound". Hopefully it doesn't slow things down, I had hate to lose me morning coffee reading material.

No more Peroxide. It made my whole finger white and burned like hell! It was killing everything it touched. Now I'm on tablets for the next 5 days with the Antbac cream. So far so good. Inspector Dude in 2 days. I'm ready I think. I will be working when he shows up. It will show him that this is DIY and no firms. To all, have a great 4th weekend, dorf dude...

I'm glad to see you finally saw the light!

Let's hope you have no more trouble and the healing is quick.

I'm also a fan of polysporin, it's a terrific skin healer - really does work and no prescription needed.

I like polysporin too, but I have not seen it in Germany. As far as I know anything that has Antibiotics in it is by prescription only.
Shu, hope your finger heals nicely. I hit my finger pretty bad last year with the hammer tacker, thank goodness it malfunctioned and no staple came out LOL. Still pretty bad though, it split my nail and took about 6 months to heal completely.

Cheers
Susie

Finger is back in shape!. Drugs work wonders. I got the bedroom wall filled and screened. I also finished the stucco on the rest of the bathroom wall. Tomorrow the Inspector Dude is showing up. I will be knee deep in DIY by the time he shows up. This will show him that I don't hire anybody. dorf dude...

That's good news Shu...about the finger I mean.

When inspector dude shows up, hand him a tool and tell him to make himself useful...you want something out of him for your money!

Inspection went great. He was glad to see an old place get remodeled. I still don't know why he came. Herr Busse why did you come? Did someone call you guys? I ask this because he said he was going to check out this Blog. I got the bedroom wall stuccoed and rubbed out. Next is the stairway wall. dorf dude...

Glad to hear the good news!!!

I guess you are getting too famous for your small town/village and some people did not want to personally see the quality restoration/improvement you are doing. Some locals may now be pushed to use the local resources and materials available for improvements in your area.

The bottom line is that you got the "blessing" of the building officials!!

I assume they did not know about your unknown future plans for glazed area behind the house using one zone of your floor hot water system of any other back addition in the future.

Man, oh man, I can't believe how quickly this all seems to be coming together now!

I know it isn't really that fast, but when big areas like that get all smoothed out it looks like a ton of progress.

If Herr Inspector Dude is going to check out your thread, maybe we should be nicer to him!
