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!

Psychiatry 25 years experience
Paronychia?: Would get this checked by your podiatrist or primary care physician.
