... some under the nail bed twice daily and the skin would soften and come off in no time. Worked great for one toe. Another toe was treated the same way , or so I thought. 2 days later I had pain on top of and under the second toe. I stopped the xviate , put toe protector on it and wrapped it up (also put some cortisone cream otc on it). Have an apt with dermo. next week. Am also type 1 diabetes. Anyone think I should try to see someone before Tues. This just started yesterday (Fri)
Probably by the time you get this you will have seen the dermatologist, who will have advised you.
I wouldn't worry, you may have overreacted with the cortisone cream and you didn't state which toe it was. It could most definitely have been sore from the treatment and may or may not have been rubbing against the toe(s) next to it.
Good you stopped treatment with the X-Viate bc of pain.
Hang in there until you see your dermatologist. You will be fine as long as there is no perforation in the skin which would call for peroxide 2xday.
All the best,
