Ingrown fingernails

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by i like tictacs, Oct 16, 2004.


  1. Are absolutley terrible. I cannot fret one thing with my left ring finger. Ouch! And it's been that way for like weeks. IT's finally scabbing over after I drained it about 1000 times. But damn...

    Go to the doctor and get some anti-biotics. I've had them too and I know they hurt.

    Do these occur just bc of lack of cutting of nails or for other reasons ?
     
  4. Cutting them too much.

    actually, it depends sometimes on cutting.. But if you get them continually, especially in the same finger - toe - it can be genetic where your nail root is too long.. So you gotta goto the doctor and they cut the edges out then kill the edges of the root.. I had to do this on 2 of my feet.. :crying:

    A friend of a friend gets ingrown toenails fairly often and has actually had his nails removed more than once.

    I was hungry :meh:
     
  16. Went to the doctor today. Got cream and stuff to soak it in. Said it'd be better in 4-5 days.

    Whee.
     
  17. This quote has got to be one of the most disturbing things I've read here on TB. Even if 'pus' was spelled right...

    oops sorry I didn't see the error.
     
  19. The LAST things I wanna see in a sentence all together are "My Mom" , "played with", and "puss smells".

    I think I shall systematically vomit from all orifices now.

    Hey, I don't remember eating THAT.


    Way to go, Oedipus. (I'm joking)

    blleeeaaarrrrghhhhh! poot!
     
  20. Two weeks later here I am. It got better for awhile and I was playing regularly. Now it hurts like a female dog again. I'm soaking it with Hibiclens for...alot of time per day, in hopes that it clears up.
