Ingrown toenail?
Nov 24, 2005
Within the past month or so, I've noticed that my left big toe seemed to hurt a little bit more than it used to (on the right edge moreso than the entire toe). It's important to note that it really only hurt when I put pressure on it. If I left it alone, I usually didn't feel any pain.

Then, a few weeks ago, I had noticed that the edge had been very mildly bleeding a little bit. However, it was extremely minimal, so it was hardly what you would call "bleeding". The "bleeding" ended long ago, and now I've noticed a dark scab that's appeared in the place between my skin and the toe. Also, another very important thing I've noticed is that my toe does not really hurt so much anymore when I apply pressure to it.

Do you think this is an ingrown toenail? I researched it, and I found that it could be caused by wearing shoes that are too tight. I've noticed that my shoes have been tight lately (8 1/2 wide), and I really need a 9 wide. My mom also said I might need extra wide. Any thoughts?
