If you have insurance or other coverage, I would take it to the Pediatrician just to make sure but probably the hot soak, sterile pop, some tea tree or lavender oil and a good band-aid followed up by a quick prayer would do it! The only thing about oils is there is no standard set by the government so you need to make sure you buy them from a quality source. I had a bad experience with some lemon oil purchased from a health food store called Aura Cacia. I had an emergency and didn't have time to wait a week for my usual shipment from Arizona and the lemon oil I got locally must have had alcohol in it because it really set me on FIRE! The bottle said 100% pure oil, of course and when I called the company, they said it was pure. I told them it was pure all right, pure BS! ;-)
Anyway, New Vision's oils are 100% pure and nothing else is added to cut or extend the oil. If it's pure, it won't burn or cause your daughter any discomfort at all and it's healing properties are mega-powerful without the negative effects anti-biotics have on the flora in the intestines. If you go the anti-biotic route, be sure you give her some pro-biotics to get her flora in the intestines back up to healthy levels. Yeast will take over if all that gets killed off...remember antibiotics means anti-life! I think the most important oil to keep on hand is Lavender because it is good for so many things kids get into like cuts, scrapes, bug bites, etc...however in research, lemon oil looked to be the best for what you have going on.
