Re: infection under toenail?
The yellow pus is an infection, an abscess. Your symptoms do sound like an ingrown toenail, even if you can't see where it's grown in, you might still have one.
I'd suggest you see a doctor before it gets much worse.
*PS . . . if you notice a black spot under your toenail or something that looks like a bruise under the nail, you should see a dermatologist immediately. There's a deadly but thankfully rare form of melanoma that starts under the toenail.
