I had an ingrown toenail for quite a while, and yesterday I had it removed.

Considering that, I think it looks pretty good!  :)

Thanks for that pic. Seriously though, hope your toe gets better soon. My mom always had ingrown nails, and my girlfriend has one now (please, no you marry your mom comments), and I know they are not fun.

That looks painful. I hope it gets better from here on.

Are not raccoons supposed to have two right feet?

Well if you've seen me dance, you'd know that I have two left feet.  :p

EDIT:  (...and apparently one right foot.  Where's my lucky raccoon's foot?)

I have had a lot of ingrown nails as well.

It used to be the big toe on my left foot, then I had that nail removed permanently.

Then it was the big toe on my right foot.

The previous time they removed that nail, they tried to do it permanently, but it grew back.

This time they removed that nail, it was done by a podiatrist, so hopefully it's gone for good.

I am in very little pain, and I don't think the toe is infected, so it should be fine as long as no one steps on my toe.  :)

I lost my big toe nail several times when I did marathon for 3yrs. Toe felt naked, and very sensitive without the nail protection. foot-in-mouth Hopefully, I do not need to go through experience any more.

Hope our Raccoon recover soon.

Ouch!!! I think.
I always had a habit of ignoring my toenails for as long as I could. In my dotage I’ve discovered a new kind of pleasure palace. I simply walk across the street to the “Nail Spa” for a regular pedicure. Those girls do wonders for your feet, and I come out like I’m walking on air. I usually go for the “deluxe”.

This is mutilation and perfect example how doctors “cure”.

All you need to do is file your nail to make it thinner, but only in the middle.

I have had many ingrown toenails, and your words make no sense.

Mutilation, standard operating procedure.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other.  ;)

Not trimming toenails is not a cause of ingrown toenails.  :p

Also, I have only gotten ingrown toenails on my big toes.

Ahh I see, thanks for the heads up! I just researched it, did you have tight shoes on or cut your nails too short or something?

I’ve never had it before that’s all

I do not wear tight shoes, and I do not cut my nails short.

I am just prone to ingrown toenails.

You aren’t alone, RC. I had to have both my big toe nails removed permanently in my teens. Pulling them out temporarily never worked for me. They always grew back ingrown. Other than some odd looks I get when wearing sandals I don’t mind it at all. No more clipping!

The worse part of the surgery is when they scrape the nail root off of the bone. No pain but you still feel the whole thing.

I had several of these when I was in the Marines. Corpsman would chop it off and I’d be good for about 6 months then they’d do it again. Mine started when I was in bootcamp, the corpsman said it was probably due to getting the wrong size boots and cutting my nails too often. She suggested I go a size larger on the boots, start doing “V” cuts when I trim my nails and just file off the top of the “V”. That definitely slowed down the recurrences. Apparently cutting your nails stimulates their growth. That’s why they had me stop cutting the sides of the nails and just file them down a little. When I was off active duty but still in the reserves I had a civilian podiatrist do an IGT removal and haven’t had another one. I still do the “V” cut and filing but since I don’t beat up my feet like I used to there have been fewer issues.

Good Luck with yours!

Any problems involving the feet are no fun. Best wishes for a full recovery!

That sound mighty painful and very drastic for a ingrowing toe nail, I was shocked by the picture the op posted too, looked like they’d operated with the end of a 6 cell maglight.
Seems almost like how they might of done it in medieval times.

I had to have one done when I was a teenager, so know how painful they are, but it was done nothing like that, they just slightly trimmed the nail and used an acid down the side to stop it ingrowing again, you can’t even see it unless you pull the skin to one side and the nail is perfect and never had a problem since with them ingrowing

RC - I had mine fixed too...but just cut and acid burned so those sides cannot come back. Funny as it may sound...that little toe can bring down some of the biggest men around.

I hope ya heal quick.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most
