    He mentioned that. I had no idea. Waiting to see the pediatrist.

    Have an infected tooth too that I'm on antibiotics for. Getting pulled in July. Ear infection too. Finally starting to feel better again.

    Yep I know. I forget about the toe. No pain so I kept hoping it would heal on its own and I just started ignoring it. I've got so much wrong the doctors never help with I just focus on the most serious issue.

    Every winter I get a sinus infection. Have for decades. If I go to the Dr to soon I don't get antibiotics. They just want to treat the symptom and give me antihistamines. I'm pushing for the specialist now in hopes of a long term solution.

    My teeth have given me trouble all my life. Multiple repairs that I would just crush and end up spitting out years later. Choked on my tongue while sleeping after having my lower molers removed. I was dreaming I was drowning and knew I needed help. Woke up to my ex-wife beating on my back and then spitting up my tongue.

    My gums were always bad due to my heart disease. After my ablation they began to heal as well as my acne my stomach and other aches and pains and issues.

    If I had gone to the doctor and allowed them to treat me I would've been dead a long time ago. I took some medicine for my arrhythmia that I shouldn't have taken and in three days I thought I was going to die.

    I've had my heart slow to about 20 beats a minute before my ablation which was surgery to burn tissue in my heart to regulate the beat. I probably should have a defib pacemaker now. I turn grey every now and then and can feel my heart acting funny.

    Feeling much better today.

    Appointments are made.

    No diabetes. My sugar always checks on the low side.

    I'm a fast healer usually as far as wounds go.

    That little piggy needs to remember to pick up some tee tree oil next time he's off to the market.

    You will want to eventually sand down the dead nail with a Dremel sanding drum a little at a time after that inflammation is dealt with, otherwise it will be hard to get any topical anti-fungals closer to the source under the nail.

    That thick dead nail will just harbor the fungus longer.

    Better to try to treat it locally if you can instead of a systematic anti-fungal.

    You don't want to kill ALL the fungus in your body now do you?

    No fungus and it looks like they are just going to leave it alone. It's probably an ingrown hair from a pair of shoes that rubbed it wrong.

    If it gets worse or changes I need to go back.

    I'd cut it off, I think its growing a third foot I saw it happen in aliens. Cut it off you're never find a "pair" of three shoes. :winky:
