    I've had a smelly toe since yesterday that is mildly numb and hurts when squeezed. A green-blue abraded colouring is imminent on my toe, it is very small at the moment but smells!

    I need help before this progresses any further.

    Thanks, anyone?

    It's not serious yet.

    So an off-counter medicine/similar would be a lot better rather than to embarrass myself at this stage (and wait a time for the appointement).

    Squick. Could be an ingrown toenail, best to show it to your GP though. :doctor:

    Yeh your logic on that makes perfect sense. You do know people die because they say "Oh if it gets more serious i'll go"?

    Go.

    Get yourself to a doctor! My great grandfather had an ingrowing toenail that turned gangrenous, leading to amputation of his leg!

    As said above by the others, go to the doctor, its either an ingrown toenail thats got infected, or a fungus, seeing as its sunday, give it a soak in warm salty water as well, just to try to clean it through a bit.

    Alright, thanks everyone. I'll be making an appointment tomorrow.

    For now though, what can I do to make it a little better?
