This is so Gross
My finger is grossing me out. I've got an infection on my ring finger where my wedding band is supposed to be! The consensus is that it's a reaction to soap residue, but since I *always* take it off before washing my hands, showering, doing dishes (fragile opals, you know), I don't think that can be it. My theory? The silver polish I used on it a few weeks ago is trapped in the indentations behind the opals and is giving me a chemical burn. Yeouch! Whatever it is, it ain't pretty. Here's the offending ring:
I think I'm gonna let my finger heal (again) and try soaking the ring in soapy water in hopes of removing any chemical residue that might be causing the problem. Any other ideas?
At least it isn't slowing down my knitting. Small victories.
