I cut my finger a couple of days ago, quite badly, and I'm worried it's infected. Would a chemist sell me antibiotics without prescription? I'll have to wait a week for a doctor's appointment, and our A&E is a new build somewhere deep in the middle of the countryside (very convenient if you've chopped something off. Or not.) Getting married on Saturday so maybe I'm overreacting... there is a strange odour lingering around my finger though, and it's a bit swollen.
