  1. Big toenail got grown in and infected, base of the nail came loose. Gave it a hard yank, but the nail was still firmly attached from about halfway up to the distal end. Totally ripped off. I've never seen a toe bleed so much before. One of my worst mistakes ever. I don't think I've ever felt such excruciating pain before.

      GP concluded when seeing my toe: "... ... But it's already fully torn out?! There's nothing much else I can do about it!" He put some povidone iodine gel on it and a toe condom. I'm supposed to keep it on for a few days and then "refresh" it. His expected prognosis regarding novel nail growth was rather optimistic.

      Good. At least you know you were treating it correctly.
