Quoting They call me mama.:" It was a little pink since he was born. Than he had been wearing scratch mittens and I never thought ... [snip!] ... between changing his scratch mittens and only just noticed this morning while changing his clothes how bad it had gotten."

My DD had the same thing at about the same age. It didn't look quite that bad though. I put breastmilk & neosporin on her finger a few times a day and within a week it was all cleared up.

My youngest DD had a finger that looked just like that about the same age! We took her to the pedi and they gave her an antibiotic. It cleared up pretty quickly
