I Cut My Foot An A Nail What Do I Need To Do
Removal...: ...Is the only permanent solution. Just the painful border can be removed, or the entire nail if necessary. After removal you can let the border grow out again, or your doctor can use a chemical to stop the nail from regrowing. If you're concerned, don't perform bathroom surgery on yourself. That can lead to an infected ingrown toenail, which could require antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What to do if i think i might have a small tailor bunion on my pinky toe. What can I do to help it?
Surgery, inserts.: Unfortunately, there are no braces or exercises to get rid of a tailor's bunion. If you elect to have surgery, there are several ways your surgeon could go about it. Depending on the angle of your bones (you'll need an x-ray), there are many different procedures to choose from to correct your foot. If you would rather, cortisone injections to the joint or orthotics can improve symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Corn: A corn looks like a skin problem. It is really a hammertoe representing a contracted toe. The contracted toe causes the bone inside the toe to rub against the skin from the inside and then pushes the skin against the shoe. That combination creates a corn. You need to have your toe examined by a podiatrist. He or she can order x-rays of your foot to determine the position of the bone and advise you of what needs to be done to fix it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Pain, redness.: Redness and pain along the nail border, sometimes with drainage indicates an "ingrown toenail". If your ingrown nail is infected, you'll likely need antibiotics, and possibly a nail procedure. If you can't get in to see a doctor, soak the toe 10 min/day in luke warm water and epsom salts, use a small amount of topical antibiotic ointment, and cover with a bandaid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why avoid?: Not sure the rationale to avoid the doctor's office and suffer with pain with an ingrown nail.

I am not: an infectious disease doctor so I just referred this question to Dr Hunter Hansfield. If Clostridium tetani did infect your foot eight days ago - I don't know if the tetanus shot that was at least 3 day out (you didn't specify which day you got the tetnaus shot was ) would prevent Tetanus or not. Hopefully Dr Hansfeild or one of the other infectious Dz Docs will respond to your question. ...Read more
Foot Injury: At around 4:30pm today I hit my foot, smallest toe is slightly cut into, vertically. And ring toe is bruised under the nail. Pulsing?
No cause for concern: The small superficial cut on your small toe shouldn't be much of an issue as long as you can move your toe and feel the sensation at the tip of the toe. If the edges of the cut are gaping use tape to bring edges together. The blood collected under the nail should resolve on its own in a few days otherwise you can go to the Dr and get it drained to relieve the pressure ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I cut my foot bad a few weeks ago on glass and super glued it shut

Glass vs infection: There is a chance you glued your wound shut over a small piece of glass or dirt which can form a foreign body in your foot. The body walls these off and can form a painful granuloma. You could have an infection brewing as well. Either way you should get that checked out by a professional soon. ...Read more
Just the opposite: Chlorine is in pools as a disinfectant, i.e. it kills bacteria and viruses. The chance of infection from a cut in a chlorinated pool less than it would be otherwise, not more. If the cut is large enough that you think it might need stitches, visit an emergency room or urgent care clinic. Otherwise, just use a bandaid and keep it clean and dry. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
