"Mom, does this look infected to you?"
No matter how old they get, they come to mom with those icky things, don't they? Bigger Girl did, with her ingrown toenail, and when i told her it did, in fact, look like it was starting to become infected, she almost panicked.
"I can't get on an antibiotic now, I just started donating my blood plasma, and they will make me sit out a month and they pay you for your time and I need the money!"
She managed to nip the infection in the bud with extra cleaning and nail care and a bit of a topical ointment, which apparently doesn't disqualify you from donating.
