How to Treat Orf?

Medical Treatment:
  • Orf will get better on its own without treatment. It usually clears up within 3 to 6 weeks
  • Cover the lesion with a sterile (hygienic) dressing and immobilize your finger may be useful to help reduce discomfort
  • If you have a high temperature or you are in severe pain (as some people also develop a bacterial infection), the lesion is not healing, see your GP. It may be required to treated by antibiotics.
  • If the lesion may not go away, a minor surgical procedure may be needed to remove it
