Infection: Was the nail edge just cut out, or was it also cauterized to prevent regrowth? The latter can be red and drain for several weeks. The alternative is infection. Either way, the best course is to contact the doctor that treated it initially, have it evaluated and let that doctor decide whether antibiotics are appropriate.
