For some years I have had a small black lesion on the side of my nail on the middle toe of my left foot. It has been very tiny but grew a bit recently. IN the middle of the night last Wednesday it must have caught on something (I have fleece sheets) and it woke me in a cute pain. When I put my leg out of the bed it was bleeding - a lot! - I am on an anticoagulant and it poured over the carpet.
It was a great challenge as I have had a disc op and have a painful hip replacement, so bending is a very difficult. I eventually managed to staunch the flow by putting a large wodge of tissue on a grabber and pushing hard on my foot. With great difficulty I got a plaster on it and I have had it on ever since. I am hoping to get it off somehow this morning and try and see what is going on.
Ideally I would soak it in some salt water to keep it sterile, then replaster it if needs be. But it is very difficult to do and if it starts bleeding like it did before I will be in a pickle.
I actually think the lesion itself needs looking at, but no point at the moment as it will be surrounded in scab. I am imagining myself saying to the receptionist on the other end of the phone that I need someone to dress my toe - you have to be dying to get an appointment for major problems!
I am about to sally forth to the bathroom to see what I can do. Things are further compounded by not being able to see it in detail - no part of my varifocals seems to get it in focus. Time I was recycled I think!
