I have an infected ingrown toe nail that has developed a painful blood blister, how can I get ride of it? Would it hurt if I tried wart freeze off?

Need proper treatmen. You need to see your doctor. An infected, ingrown toenail needs to have the ingrown nail excised and you need antibiotics. Freeze off will not help.
see your doctor. If it is infected avoid putting anything foreign on it. Your doctor will help youremove the part of the nail ingrown as well as prescribe any necessary antibiotics or laser treatments for the area. Avoid using dirty instruments and self treating.

Have it checked. What you describe is a condition known as onychocryptosis or ingrown toenail. The symptoms can vary from very mild to severe depending on how long it has been present. It occurs when part of the nail penetrates the skin, which can often result in an infection. The treatment includes antibiotics, and removal of the offending part of the nail. See a dermatologist or podiatrist for evaluation. Read more...

Visit Casualty Room. We call it the "Emergency Room" here in the States, but from what it sounds like you may have irritated the area enough to cause a bigger problem. The toe nail probably needs to be completely removed- which is best done by a doctor with local anesthetic. Besides, you need an evaluation for 'cellulitis' or localized infection there. Stay off the foot/leg, take some acetaminophen and go there ASAP. Read more...

What should be done about, what we think is an infected ingrown toe nail? The toe nail has come off twice, smells bad and had a red color.

Toe problem. I am making the assumption that this was not submitted by an 11 year (even though demographic shows this is being asked by an 11 year old). Just seems too sophisticated for that age. The fact that the toe is malodorous is of concern. Recommend podiatrist or your healthcare provider evaluate promptly. Read more...

The best thing you. Could possibly do is bring your toe to a podiatrist. It's dangerous and foolhardy to try to deal with this on your own, and you could make the infection worse. Removing ingorwn toenails is fast, painless and quick, and your eyes will bug out at the size of what you've got inside your skin. Soaking helps localize the infection, but the astringent action of water is not temperature dependent. Read more...

Will anti fungal cream clear up an infected/ingrown toe nail?

Not by itself. Anti fungals of any type will only help if the infection is fungal. Even then that would only be part of the answer. The ingrown nail must still be removed and an environment condusive to healing must be developed at the site. Read more...
Most likely NOT... There is a small piece of nail still embedded in the corner. You need to get that out. Soak to soften the area and try to get it free. If you can't get it out on your own, a podiatrist can. Sometimes this can be done without numbing the toe, but often, anesthesia is necessary. If it is a chronic condition, there is a very successful surgery that can be done to permanently correct the problem. Read more...

Not the right choice. Ingrown toenails can be temporarily remedied through soaking your foot in warm water, removal of embedded debris from the nail borders, and applying an antibiotic ointment to temporarily soften the corners. If you have continued pain, redness or drainage, get it looked at by a professional as you may need to have the ingrown nail border removed and you may need antibiotics. Read more...
