What is this black stuff in my big toenail it doesn't hurt at all its just in the nail?
It is probably just old blood (in other words, a bruise) from where you banged your toe at some point. It will go away as your toenail grows out. It is not dangerous. Another condition that affects toenails is "fungus" but that usually turns your toenail a whitish or yellowish color. It is probably NOT blood. I had a black area in my toenail that I ignored. Turned out to be a form of mold in the Pencillium species. Most probably Penicillium chrysogenum. My problem is after that my nail started to lift up and have stuff UNDER the nail. This may be more of a characteristic of fungus, however penicillin is a close relative but it is easier to treat. Doctor gave me itraconazole (Sporanox) Three months is all it's going to take. I can wear sandals this summer!

How do you get your ingrown toenail out?
If your ingrown teonail is red and swollen, then go to a doctor. They will numb your toe with a small needle and get the ingrown toenail out. The needle is the worst part if this "surgery". However, if your ingrown toenail is not red and swollen, you can probadly get needle nose nail clippers and dig it out. This will be somewhat painful and may grow back worse. From experience, i would definatly go to the doctor the first time and just get it over with so i know it will not grow back.

How do you get rid of toenail fungus?
Mix tea oil with henna and put it on affected areas. --- Toenail fungus can actually be very difficult to treat. Since the fungus lives under the toenail, it is hard to get to it. The best treatment will actually depend on how severe the infection is and what kind of medicines you prefer to take. If you catch it early, there are some very good topical treatments you can use. Some are all natural and some have active ingredients. If the infection is severe and nothing else is working, you should talk to your doctor. The prescription pills have some very extreme side effects, so I would only use those as a last option. The web site below has a lot more information. There is also a link at the bottom to go to a review of 2 products you can start with at home.

How do you cut an ingrown toenail?
take a needle go right into the the part of the toenail by the skin, lift the toenail up with the needle and take the nail clippers and cut it back. or in the front of your toenail right in the middle, cut a v shaped figure. the point of the v should be facing up the toenail. this way the toenail will grow toward each other and will prevent ingrown toenails to happen.
You are scared to go to the doctor about and ingrown toenail what should you do?
1) You should go to the doctor. 2) In the meantime, you can soak your toe in Epsom salts. If it's bad enough you can put a TINY amount of cotton under the nail to try to pull it out of the bed. Wear shoes with a wider toe box to help relieve pressure. Be sure if you're exercising your nails are not too long. Pressure on the nail increases the likelihood of an ingrown toenail.
