Infection: You need to see a dr for this prolonged infection. Look for local resources--either county health department based or community clinic that will see you on sliding scale or for free, or if no other option, go to er to be seen & get treatment, then work with hospital's billing/social work dept's to negotiate payment.

Ingrown toenail: It seems like you have an infected ingrown toenail. You should try to soak the area in epsom salts and warm water on a daily basis. If the infection does not resolve you should see a podiatrist for further evaluation. Untreated infected ingrown toenails can cause the infection to spread and could also infect the bone which is underneath the nail.
