Re: Damaged my toe

You need to drop something heavy on the opposite toe, to balance out the injury.

Re: Damaged my toe

Why not take an hour of your day and go have a doctor look at it. If you don't have insurance I guess I understand why you're so against it, otherwise I'd be afraid of it getting an infection with the way it currently looks.

Re: Damaged my toe

The nail needs to torn clean off. Only then will true healing happen. Don't see a doctor, listen to the internet.

Re: Damaged my toe

I'm more turned off by those wispy strands of hair than the crushed digit.

Shave your toes, man!

Re: Damaged my toe

First, amputate the toe right away. The toe is doing nothing but living on your foot without paying rent and hanging out with your other toes until 3am. Next thing you know, you'll be babysitting the toes on your other foot.

Second, keep a log of all your interactions with the toe. You will need this when HR asks why you are playing favorites with your other toes.

Third, go see a doctor. But not one of Sweet Baby James's pussy doctors; an OBGYN will be of no help.

Re: Damaged my toe

As everyone seems to agree, and having suffered through this myself, the nail should be drilled so the blood can be drained. Then eventually the damaged nail will be pushed out as the new nail grows, assuming that the root or matrix isn't seriously damaged.
Go see a doctor or use a non-sterile implement and risk something more severe.
Remember that something as simple as an untreated hangnail can lead to death. See blood poisoning/sepsis.

Re: Damaged my toe

Its no big deal. Eventually your toenail will fall off. This shit has happened to me numerous times. Anyone telling u to go see a doctor is a big pu$$y.

Re: Damaged my toe

Only drill through your toenail if it's throbbing with pain, otherwise just let it be and it'll heal itself. If you do decide to drill I'd recommend a straightened out paper clip. Heat that bastard red hot and then slowly push it into the nail.

Oh, and stop being a pussy!

Re: Damaged my toe

Finally. The John Rambos of Otter have educated me. Well..the nail will not be mucked with.

I just have never had a toe issue so this realm is new to me. Fuck the doctor. I'll rip the bitch out, pour some alcohol on it, bitch like a bitch, and keep going about my way before I muck about with the nail.

Re: Damaged my toe

Dropped a 75 lb dumbbell on my big toe once... blood pooled and hurt like a sonovabitch. Until I spent a $35 copay to visit the doc in the box, who used a small laser to burn a tiny hole in my toenail. The pain stopped instantly once the blood could get out. I did end up losing the toenail, and it still has some issues a few years later.

And when you say "pour alcohol on it" I assume you mean whiskey, like a real man!
