Ok, so....if you're going to be disgusted or bothered that I would post this than don't look at the pics....i'm posting this because it has been part of my life for the last week and a half and it hasn't been a very fun part either!!!!! This is my life!!!
I have this toe infection called Paronychia. It's so painful and pretty gross (bleeding and pussing) TMI?. Haven't been able to wear shoes other than flip-flops, could hardly walk for a couple days and I was pretty sure it was going to have to be lanced but thanks to antibiotics that didn't happen!!!

Not a very good picture taken by my phone but this is at the height of the infection!!! So painful!!!

I think this picture looks worse but this is how it looks while it is healing. All the skin around my toe where it was red (you can see that in the upper pic) is dry and peeling off.. I have never had anything like this and hope I never get it again. It was really painful!!! By the way, you can get this very easily, just from having a hang nail or not cutting your nails properly (toes or fingers) so be careful...believe me you don't want this!!!
