Our expert says:
If it made a yellow area in the flesh next to the nail it may have formed an abcess and may need draining and then you need to take her to your doctor. If not, you can treat with Bactroban ointment on the red and swollen area. It could be due to an ingrown toe nail but usually we won't cut out the nail while there is acute infection (it is too painful anyway) Take her to your doctor after the infection cleared to see if the ingrown nail needs removal.
