I waited too long again with this ingrown toenail. I have a lady that gives foot massages and she is also a significantly skilled doctor. She did the “surgery”, taking out half of my toenail, leaving only the hole in the side of my toe. I don’t know what it would have cost in the USA. There was no anesthetic. She was so skilled with her sharp knife that the pain was quite bearable.
The sixty RMB bill iwas less than nine USD. The treatment included the other nine toes, sulfa, a bandaid, and a final dressing. It is good as new, with only a hole. Some things are still a bargain in China. (Photos taken with my Huawei 10+ cell phone and it’s Leika camera).
