infected Ingrown Toe Nail Major Problem...


I have had a ingrown toe nail for the last year, I went to the doctor a year ago and was put on a waiting list, I have received antibiotics a lot.

I have noticed that now, when I clean my foot (I soak it in water and salt), after that I become very strange. I feel anger, I can't think and I feel other very weird things.

But its the foot that's causing it.

Its driving me insane, really. Almost over the insane point, this is crazy, how can a infected toe nail have mental effects?, after I wash it I feel this anger and this confusion in my head, even my heart acts weird...

This is all from my infected toe nail.

Really, I get this like I need to ROAR... All from a ingrown toe nail. THIS IS VERY VERY annoying, very annoying. I am cleaning it daily , AND EVERYTHING. ITS . WHY WHY WHY .
Now, is this a sign that it is deeply infected?.

Thank you.

Thank you for asking!
I am totally amazed at being on waiting list for such a little minor over the counter out patient procedure and i don't believe it. All it needed was a little lignocaine induced nail removal and some topical care with some antibiotics. Thats it..Wonder why has been so much delay.Even ER facility can be used to get rid of it the same time. Get to a general surgeon and let them finish your miseries in seconds. Medicines don't help at all.Avoid side trimming of the nails in future and cut them in u shaped and spare the edges.
Take care
