I have noticed that it was happening to my feet last year. I tried certain things my doctor suggested, soaking my feet in warm water then putting a cotton ball at the corners of my big toe nail. however my skin has been penetrated a couple times, but it went away but has come back recently. I am seriously concerned because I am doing Muay Thai and it puts a lot of pressure on my feet. And i dont want this to hinder my training. I am going to go to my doctor to see if it needs surgery. I dont think its that serious atm, and its only in the early stages. It has never gotten infected cause I was really conscious about cleaning it, and I think my attempts to repair it is in vain now and too late. So i was wondering, how long would it take for my toe to recover and would it not be able train after having the surgery, if so, how long would i be out for. Also, I am not sure if OHIP or my UHIP covers a surgery of this type. So a second question, does OHIP/UHIP (canadian health care) cover this type of surgery? or will it hafta come out of my pocket.
