Puss coming out of blister like wounds on fingers

Patient: Hi…i have 2 blister like cuts…one on middle finger (the first joint from my fingertip) and one on the ring finger (second joint from fingertip). When i press or apply pressure to both cuts, I see yellowish/whitish puss coming out. Then the blood comes out afterwards, and finally clear fluid that comes sticky after it dries comes out. What is it and can i treat it at home?

 

 

Symptoms: Swelling around the cut, painful when touched
