Slowly Healing "Murdered" Toenail

It's always feel great when you have clean nails on your hand and feet but when your pedicurist hurts you then it's another story arghhh..

My vacationing niece from Sydney asked me to accompany her to the nail salon to get her much needed manicure. So we went to this nail salon at the nearby mall, at first i told her to have her nails done at the other salon but she insisted it there.. Ok fine.... the salon is clean and cozy anyway.

Not wanting to wait for her for about an hour or so, I decided to have foot spa with pedicure while my niece got a relaxing hand massage with manicure. The foot spa was nice as well especially when the warm water where my feet are dipped is making my feet relaxed. I have few dead feet skin as what the pedicurist told me. Awesome! She didn't have troubles in my feet i guess.. haha..

I picked a nice red nailpolish for my toenails and it makes my feet look nice. The cleaning at first was ok, she is even asking me if it hurts and I said no. When the cleaning was on my big toe on my right foot, she accidentally hurt it and I blurted out that it hurts.. arghhhh.. She continued to clean it or cut the sides of the nails and oh God it hurts more. After the session, the toe is not hurting much but after a week, the toenail become swollen and pus are accumulating already wahhh.. OUCH!

I decided to put some betadine on my wound and asked my doctor friend to prescribe an antibiotic for me to drink. She prescribed this Dalacin C  (Clindamycin) 300 mg  2/day for 7 days. It is quite expensive, costs P 95.25 each since it is branded. I guess it's much cheaper if I got the generic one.

Anway, i have been drinking this for 3 days now and thankfully, my wound is starting to heal. There is less pain and swelling and the pus are coming out slowly. At first, I have no intention of drinking antibiotic but the swelling is becoming so uncomfortable already so I had to take them now.

Lesson learned. I will not have my nails done for now at the salon. I will just do it by myself now. For sure it will take me years to have it done by someone since this experience is just so unbearable.
