Hello Doctor. I have a pain & swelling in my toethumb along the nail. THe problem is persisting for more than 2months now and during the period I have been taking oral antibiotics to reduce swelling and pain as advised by our physician, which gave some temporary relief also and during less swelling I tried to cut the corner edge of my effected nail, but didnot succeeded as some part still remained as again for last 15days problem is increasing.
I am applying local antibiotic Dettol so that germs may not accumulate there, but swelling and pus are increasing. Doctor is advising surgery but I have come to know that there are some Laser treatment also available for this problem which cuts down the corner edge of the problematic nail for a permanent solution. Can u please advise if laser treatment is available and whether it is gud solution? Can u please advise addresses of gud Doctor in Surgery/Laser with addresses and phone nos. who can treat it gud and permanently?
I am presently out in Hyderabad (India) for my job, whereas I belong to my native place in Delhi (India). Please advise addresses in any of these locations. Please advise early on Urgent basis as I need to get this treated now without any further delay.
Thanks and regards – Rajesh
