Ingrown Toe

I toe is badly ingrown, leaking blood and pus and probably infected, what should I do about it? It's been like this for maybe a month.

Take care wholistically,
Soak the foot in warm, hot water 15-20 minutes, up to 2 times a day
and can add epsom or dead sea salt to the water.
AVOID cuttings
Try gently massaging around the nail while in water.

Best to soak and take care before going to the Dr.  that may give antibiotics or surgery.

I know I ain't a doctor. What I do though is try to cut the nail fairly straight and not too short. I usually don't have any problem unless I somehow mess it up.,

If you round it off too much these things can happen.

I understand not wanting to cut the toe, but if you open it up where the infection]
is then when you soak it the salt will be able to get in there and kill the germs causing the infection.
I've had to do that with a cut I got on my hand at work.  It had a sliver of something in it
causing it to get infected.  I used a very sharp razor to open it and soaked it with epsom salt
and warm water.  It worked very well.  When I was able to clear it up I could see the sliver and remove it. I won't lie it hurt quite a bit, but once the infection is in there it has to be killed or it will just get worse.  I hope you heal quickly.

Gave up 2day and went 2 see a doc, told I it was badly and infected and could cause a blood infection or gangrene and suggested antibiotics or surgery if that doesn't work. I figure I got no choice cept the fuckers are trying 2 charge I $60 for a weeks worth of pills! I get $50 a week to eat for 7 days! Unreal what babylon try to get away with..

Gangrene is horrible, if you get that, means they will amputate your toe. But the almost more horrible thing is that they are charging you so much for it... If you cannot afford it, they HAVE to give the pills to you! They cant just let the toe gets worse and worse. If they do, get them bastards... If its that serious with the infection, and you cant afford the medicine, they have to give it to you... Seriously... They cannot force you to starve for over a week just to get the pills. Food is more important. Blessings MaoriLion, i really hope your toe gets better in some way, i shall pray for you! Bless.

Yes bro, hope ya get better, the price is insane!,

Seriously though bro, don't buy the pills unless you got nuff to eat,ask someone close to you maybe if you can rely on them for a bit, while you get better. Starving yourself will not help because it will make your body weaker.

hope you get better soon

One Love

Peace
