Hi my name is ***** ***** I'm currently in heart failure with the return of angina I had a bad kidney infection last week and took antibiotics at home at around that time my index finger on my right hand became very painful I thought the antibiotics would help it to but over a week on it's getting worse and the pain is going down my finer its at the bend now I've tried hot salty water and savlon cream to try to draw it out but nothing is working do you think it's related to the kidney infection and should I go back to doctor

This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

yes, you should go back to your doctor

the kidneys are very important to have if you have heart failure

the kidneys help you get rid of excessive fluid out of your body if you have heart failure.

if you have an infection of your kidneys, this can be life threatening if you have heart failure.

if the infection or swelling is getting worse in your finger and hands, you need to go back to your doctor

or go back to the hosptial A&E department to see a doctor right away

you may have to go into the hospital to have your kidneys and heart monitored

until your infection gets better
