I may have a blister underneath the large toenail...is this possible? How can I get rid of it?


Posted by HikerBiker

After hiking 5 days in a row, I believe I have a blister underneath my bigtoe nail.  The entire nail got very swollen & after pricking it with a clean needle ~ it drained clearish fluid all day...and has been 'seeping' fluid ever since (over a full week now).  How can I get rid of this?  When I can I get back in the swimming pool and most importantly, when will this crazy thing stop hurting?  I went to a podiatrist who said the nail is firmly attached (I'm not so sure) and that I could go hiking this weekend, problem was I still couldn't get a shoe on!  Help?!
