The Toe Bro Cringe Worthy TV on A&E

If you’ve seen Dr Pimple Popper and thought that was hard to watch wait till you see this one.
This guy treats the ugliest and worst foot conditions you can imagine.

Tuesday nights on A&E. Fun stuff.

I've been watching this. It's rather repetitive. The guy cuts into the sides of someone's ingrown toenails, takes pincers and twists off the ingrown parts, and applies acid.

Yeah pretty much.

There is the occasional wart.

Is it a Forever Fix or until the nail grows back out again?

Nope, you couldn't pay me to watch this show. And to think, this this started out as the Arts and Entertainment Network.

Usually his treatments are permanent. Sometimes he removes the nail in its entirety and cauterizes the bed so it doesn't grow back. The "Toe Bro" is perfectly personable, but the show is kind of lame, and as others have indicated, not of much value, educational or otherwise.

Thanks.
I have a problem with ingrown toenails and wondered how it was handled.

My son just had his ingrown toenail dealt with for the second time. The first time it was done in-hospital (my wife and son walked into emerg and they did the removal there-and-then) and they removed about 1/3 of the toenail in a straight line from top to bottom, on the side that was causing the problem. That was in September and the nail grew back and was causing him problems again by February.

This time we took him to a podiatrist who did the surgery - he's apparently done 1,000s of them - and he removed about 1/8 of the toenail from top to bottom, again on the side that was causing the problem. Then he went under the cuticle and used some chemical to kill the root of the nail just where it was growing and causing the problem.

Whereas the first surgery was quite painful for about a week, the second was handled with just extra-strength advil over the weekend and epsom salt soaks and rebandaging twice daily since. It hasn't been long enough yet to be sure the second method solved the problem but, assuming it does, I heartily recommend it. My son was on a crutch for a few days after the in-hospital surgery but walked in/walked out from the podiatrist.

As for the show - televised medical oddities fall neither under the umbrellas of arts nor entertainment for me.
