Q: I've had an ingrown toenail twice both times cut out in a foot docs office by the same guy however the second one later I guess came back or something and to be cut out a second time and even now the same place is still sore to the touch years later like its never gone Away i don't see any nail there as I've cut the nail back completely myself yesterday finally being fed up with it tho it did bleed a little from the skin on left side of big toe were the raised skin is that's sore to touch so idk if a piece a nail was there and never taken out in either of the two cuts or infection or otherwise however since it's seems to be reopend cause of bleeding I've been using oschners solution to pull out any infection tho it's seems more just blood at this point however now the area is very tender and the slightest tap is severely painful. I really don't want to have to get it cut a third time 3 is a little ridiculous and I want my right foot back to normal for the first time in years I've had enough and sugesstios on how to fix this? After work today in ganna pull back the skin on left side and I think it may help but i don't know.
