I had part of my toenial removed 4 days ago and it's swelled up, its black (the skin around it) and a little red. I think the blackness is from the solution the doctor put on it and it went under the skin (not sure)

Any advice? Should i see my doctor again this friday(only day hes available)?

Before i had it removed i took antibiotic pills. Maybe the swelling is from an infection that didnt go away?

Thank You! Please Help!

Call the doc immediately! This sounds like a medical emergency. Do you want to lose the toe to gangrene? Or die from a blood-borne infection?

I had 2 toe nails completely removed and 4 more partially removed and nothing like that happened with any fo them. Call now!
