The Toenail

I've just removed my problematic toenail! The toe which had darn blister under it popped is still in pain. So in living up to my nickname, I borrowed a nail clipper from a colleague, grabbed the toe and trimmed away. The nail was soft enough to cut thru easily. I'm getting quite good at it - this being my 3rd procedure.

Here's how it looked like after the initial 2 cuts


Here's how a toe looks like minus a nail. Now you know why they're called "little pinky".

  • Now that I've removed it, it's better already.

    Haza: I guess no one will want to suck on our toes (I mean the kinky way)!

  • Gosh, that looked awful, but from my own previous experience, it merely looks worse than it actually feels. Mrs Rabbit and my parents were grossed out by my big toe when I pulled the nail out. But it felt strangely, cathartic because the dead nail is no longer festering there.

  • Gosh Jamie, That's really disgusting! But thanks for the info. Even a Doctor is not spared from injuries! haha;)
