I have a serious problem with my toe and nail and i am afraid.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've always faced a problem with cutting my toe nails and quite often it created some problems. But this time is the worst it has even been. For the past weeks id have some bleeding and puss around the left part of my left toenail, i assume due to some pieces of nail that i didn't cut and got lost in the meat there. So today i decided to restrict my blood flow there and try to cut that part of the grown nail, i used alcohol afterwards in order to sterilise the area but now it got more swollen than usual and the toe has a different colour. I am really afraid that this could be a really serious problem. I plan on seeing a doctor but i am afraid they'll have to take my nail out without anaesthesia or even cut my toe. you can see the situation in the attached photo.

    You need antibiotics because it is clearly infected/ingrown.
