The most disgusting ingrown toenails surgery (VIDEO)
Warning: Gross medical video and images.
Once we got an infected toenail from a not-so-hygienic nail salon in NYC. It was extremely painful to walk or to even put the lightest pressure on it and they need to go to an urgent care, have part of toenail permanently removed and missed a week of work. Six infections on three different toes is some spectacular hygiene neglect.
After tying off the toes with a rubber band to minimize bleeding, the doctor uses a scalpel to cut a long and deep incision on the sides of the nails and flesh.
There are things you can do to prevent this happening to you, don’t trim your toenails too short, especially on the sides, don’t wear tight shoes and properly wash your feet.
The doctor removes a large bit of flesh off the big toe. It takes awhile to get it loose. If you’ve ever had an infection, you know how brutally painful it can be. They must have used a ton of painkillers on the patient.
All stitched up and ready to go. Once the painkillers wear off the patient is going to be in even more pain and it can take up to a week to heal if properly cared for.
