I've had an ingrown toenail for around 5-6 months and am still on a waiting list, I'm taking antibiotics and cleaning it, could I still lose whole toe?

I've had an ingrown toenail for around 5-6 months and am still on a waiting list, I'm taking antibiotics and cleaning it, could I still lose whole toe?

Infected or not?: This depends if the ingrown nail is causing an infection (redness, pain, swelling, pus, increase in skin temperature). If you are relatively healthy and have an infection, this would probably not lead to needing an amputation, however, if you have diabetes or are immune compromised, then you need to take care of this immediately. In my opinion any bacterial infection should be treated promptly. ...Read more

Unclear question: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. The information you provided does not seem to add up and hence it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
