Re: infected big toe nail with puss and red tender cuticle, help!
Is the side of your toe nail grown in? I used to get ingrown toenails a lot, too, and I didn't do anything about it until it got infected (it would hurt a lot, and ooze pus when I squeezed it). Can you tell if the nail is grown in? Maybe you should go to a podiatrist.
It sounds worse than just a case of fungus, which usually doesn't hurt, and doesn't ooze pus.
