... Since I am a college student, I am unable to go home to see my doctor since he is only in the office on Monday-Wednesday. Well, I am not sure what to do about my ingrown toenails. If you go to the urgent care facility, will they be able to cut them out? I really want a partial nail avulsion with phenol (I believe it's called that) so it does not grow back again and I just...

... but as I am very scared of hospitals, I put off getting it looked at professionally. Eventually the doctor decided it would be best for me to have both of my big toenails removed, but I only managed to cope with having my left one removed. ... (1 replies)
... Is the side of your toe nail grown in? I used to get ingrown toenails a lot, too, and I didn't do anything about it until it got infected (it would hurt a lot, and ooze pus when I squeezed it). Can you tell if the nail is grown in? Maybe you should go to a podiatrist. It sounds worse than just a case of fungus, which usually doesn't hurt, and doesn't ooze pus. (4 replies)
... a good sign. That's not a fungal infection, that's a bacterial infection. You may need to see a doctor to clean it out. The doctor might wind up removing the toenails entirely. ... (1 replies)

... only allowed to tell you what she suspects and then to send you to your doctor for a proper diagnosis. She is also not allowed by law to work on nails that are infected unless she has been given written permission to do so by your doctor. ... (3 replies)
... It depends entirely on how ingrown they are. If they are so ingrown that the skin is inflamed and infected, you should see a podiatrist. If they are just sore from being ingrown, you can soak your feet & nails in very salty water for a full 10 minutes. Remove and dry only your feet, not the effected nail. Using a pair of toe nail nippers (not clippers), carefully lift up... (1 replies)
... Because the infection lives deep within the soft tissues of the nail bed AND in the layers of the nail plate. Simply removing the infected nail is not enough to kill all the spores. Keep applying the medication until the nail has completely replaced itself. ... (3 replies)
... why I have to keep applying the Vicks until the whole nail has grown out from the bottom... I mean, why not just let the part that looks infected grow out? ... (3 replies)
... Hi. I've had fungus for sooo long, I'm over it. I can't take anything for it like Lamisil or Leucatin because I'm nursing still and plan to for a while.

If I put some sort of treatment on while they were growing back, would it kill... (1 replies)
... ily basis. It may take a while to get an appointment, so you might just have to tough it out in the meantime.

... Pseudomonas bacteria live on our bodies and are not normally a problem unless ther eis a cut, tear or break to the skin. This is why, if we scratch or pick at a bite or cut, it will become infected.
