Post Toe Still Hurts Weeks After Operation

Greetings all,

I had an ingrown toenail removed about two weeks ago, and it was pretty bad (puss, a lot of it :P). Everything went perfectly fine, but it seems that now the nail is growing straight out but some skin that has over lapped it overtop is being pushed by the growing nail (sorry for the very bad description lol). This hurts a lot when pressure is applied, and for those of u who can imagine what im talking about, is that normal, it did this before surgery when it was really bad, but should it after? will it go away?

Thanx a lot u guys, rock on!

Ingrown toenails take a very long time to heel. Up to a few months. You need to give it sometime.. Have been You been told to soak your foot. I had mine done in January and it took until March to completely heel before I was back in regular shoes..

take your time and keep it clean and air it out while you are at home.
