    In 2012, my mom took me to the Dr regarding ingrown toenails and ended up having surgery to remove them. They cut both sides of my left and right big toes to remove the ingrowns. Soon after they healed I started to develop a small bump under the scar where the stitches were on the left toe, bottom right corner. (Which wasn't discolored or painful at the time) My mom took me back to the Dr to have it looked at and she told us that it was normal and that it would go away with time. She was wrong.. in the last 5 years, the bump has gotten a lot bigger resulting in pain, breakage and discoloration of the nail. (I would have seen a Dr a lot sooner but we didn't have the money) Yesterday it flared up, turning bright red and very painful to touch. Today, it's twice the size of yesterday and is becoming difficult to walk on due to swelling and appears to be turning purple. Does anyone know what this might be and how to treat it? (Tried adding a picture but it says the file is too large for the server to process.)

    It is hard to say what it is with imaging. But whatever it is, you probaly should get to dr as soon as possible.

    I currently am dealing with the same thing and I’m not sure what to do! Also don’t have insurance and don’t want to go back to the doctor. Had my toenail partially removed 6 months ago and this bump is starting to bother me now and almost has me limping
