    i have always been susceptible to ingrown toenails but this is the first time i has gotten really bad!
    i did the dumbest thing i cut teh nail deep and that only flared the infection more. I went to a doctor and was told that a partial or possible complete nail removal is due. im honestly scared never had surgery much less this.
    i do have a question it seems taht the infection is welling on the side of the toe could a doctor just slice the skin on that side and perhaps drain any puss tahts collected there?
