Re: Toenail removed

: : Bonnie, you did not say but did you have the permanent removal? If so, it is possible that you have a nail spicule...part of the nail is growing back and shouldn't be. Has the doctor explored the area? The Cipro should help the infection but you have to check the underlying cause.

: : Good luck!

: : Misti
: Misti, it was supposed to have been the permanent removal (root & all). The way it is acting, I have suspected 'something' is in there. IF what you say is so, then I wonder what might be done about it. My next appt is 2/25.
: Thanks!
: Bonnie


Bonnie,

When that happens in our office, we renumb the toe and the reuse the chemical in order to kill the nail spicule. Sometimes, not often, a little spike of nail will regrown because the chemical did not reach it. After the re-do, very rarely is there a recurrence.

Good luck,
Misti
