Patient : Hello-
I have toenail fungus, and it causes my nails to stick up at an angle, making footwear uncomfortable. I filed them down on Thursday, and accidentally inhaled some of the particles. I read that this could be life-threatening. I have since developed a cough with sputum and a sore throat.
Is my life in danger?
