After several weeks, we made an appointment to see the podiatrist, who cut away the nail, exposed the infection and ordered twice a day soaks in warm water and a small amount of beta dine. Infection cleared up, and he had no more problems. But, the best news was that removing part of the toe nail (which sounds horrible, but was an easy procedure) gave DH almost immediate relief. Best wishes to you and your mom.
Brown Bagger, what is Bag Balm? Will have to find the equivalent over here and give it a try....
