How do I fix my big toe? At first it was because I cut my thumb nail too short and then it got swollen and now it’s in. the nail can be cut, but the swelling still persists to this day. I have been to the nearest clinic but there is no progress, I want to go to the hospital but have to use a referral, while from the clinic it is very difficult to ask for a referral on the grounds that the leg is still swollen and cannot be treated in the hospital. thanks

Regards,

From the information you conveyed, there are complaints of swelling of the feet, especially in the nail area and the skin of the thumb, it may be caused by ingrowing nails, or nails that grow and enter the skin tissue. This condition causes the risk of dirt on the toes entering following the growth of the nail, causing infection and swelling, one of which contains pus.

So it is necessary for you to immediately return to your family doctor for control if the drugs given have run out but there has been no improvement. Nail clipping is sometimes not an effective way, because there may still be some nails that enter your skin. Thus removing part or all of the nail can help eliminate the cause. However, you still need to discuss this with the doctor who treats you.

What you need to do to prevent this condition from recurring is:

1. Avoid wearing tight shoes

2. avoid or limit the use of high heels

3. Clean nails regularly, if necessary use professional care services

That's the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
