    Exclamation Please help me! Purple toe? please read this all

    I have an ingrown toenail, I've had dozens, so I do what i usually do, dig it out, DOUSE it in peroxide and then it heals fine

    I did that this time, my toe doesn't hurt, but its PURPLE!?! i mean if i touch the skin near the nailbed(?) its very slightly tender, but my toe doesn't hurt (my other ingrown toes hurt?)

    BUT there is a variable, I'm a fairly large woman, and i started walking, after a LONG time of immobility (i can walk fine, i just don't)

    will this effect this?

    Im scared to death!

    of this
    AND the doctors

    REALLY don't wanna get the surgery, people are saying it doesn't hurt alot

    but im still scared as hell

    Depending on the color of purple

    Dusky dark purple-blood flow problem see the doc
    Deep reddish purple & swollen- infection see the doc

    Are you diabetic? Or might you be? It could be bruised from walking again and infected, you just cn't feel it.

    I'd get it checked.
