Ingrown Toenail

I have never had one before but I guess this is an ingrown toenail.
I cut the nail back as usual I always cut them back far, but this time right at the top left corner of my toe where the nail is its gone red and a little swollen and sore feeling, sharp at times, I had a good look at it yesturday and decided to cut the nail to clean it up, bad move as later that day I seen pus come put when I pushed it.

So I now have an infected toe, any suggestions, I know I can get antibiotics but i guess a few days treating it otherwise might be a good idea first???

Gently supports the ankle by providing controlled compression throughout the joint, while relieving pressure over the malleoli.
