Monday's Image of the Week: Infected Ingrown Toenail




'



This ingrown toenail involved both sides and had been present for over 3 years. The nail discoloration is from some attempt at using Silver Nitrate to shrink or cauterize the swollen tissue. The nail borders can not be seen due to the swollen borders. The patient is wrapping the toe for compression, soaking 1-2 times daily in salt water, and hopefully the infection will be cleared.
