No visible infection, but pain
My nail looks completely normal. No redness, no ingrowth whatsoever. It hurts like hell and throbs. I can't zip things up, press buttons, and I even have trouble writing.
So today, I was showing the nail to a friend of mine, a nurse, and she agreed that it looked as if nothing were wrong. A few days previously, I had cut back the side of the nail over suspicion of an ingrown nail. I pulled back the skin from the place I had cut and a small bit of pus popped out.
I dunno what this is... Has anyone else experienced this?
UPDATE: Today I clipped back the nail even further and more pus came out..
