A 21-year-old female asked:

Where in your toe do you inject the toe when it has a ingrowing toenail on the right side of the big toe?

The base of the toe: The most effective numbing is place at base (proximal aspect) of the toe, on both sides.
Dr. Stuart Plotkin

There are 4 small nerves that go into each toe and you need to anesthetize all 4 to adequately numb up a toe before nail surgery
