This patient came in yesterday. She came in because the second toe nail was digging into the bottom of her foot and causing pain (a small indentation or sore is visible in the ball of her foot).
Most readers may think this is uncommon, but I see this a few times a month. Fortunately, this patient was not diabetic; otherwise, there is a good chance that she would have developed an infection where the nail was piercing her flesh.
