Ingrown Toe nail

Hi Doc,

My left big toe is very painful to touch. It feels s though the toe nail is pushing against the skin and is causin discolouration of the tip of the nail. It is still early days and I would like to get it sorte asap. Any ideas? Is there an ointment I can use or should I see a podiatrist?
Regards.

Anon, you can soak your toe in warm Savlon™ water 3 times a day and apply Bactroban® cream - if that doesn’t make a difference, you can see a podiatrist. Good luck.
