infection following toenail removal

I had both big toenails removed nearly 8 weeks ago due to re-occuring infected ingrown toenails. I was on Cephalaxin 500 mg several days before surgery and 10 days following surgery. I developed infection in both nails about 4 weeks following the procedure. I was put on Augmentin 500 mg for 10 days, the doctor had be soaking twice a day for 10 minutes then changed to saline solution followed by dry gauze. I have ben on Augmentin 875 mg now for 9 days and still have alot of redness, drainage, and pain. I haven't been able to wear shoes or walk properly since the procedure. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Cindy
