You : You might have an infected ingrown toenail. You'll not only need a course of oral antibiotics, but will need to have that piece of nail that's stuck in your skin removed.
It's a simple and easy office procedure. No pain, no disability, and you'll feel better immediately.
Go see a foot doctor!
