Thanks for all the replies. I was freaking out a little bit. I soaked my foot 4 times in hot salt water before I went to bed and took a double dose of vit C with a glass of oj and some cod liver oil. After that the red streak was almost completely gone, down to about an inch from my toe and the swelling was relieved, so I felt better and snuggled up in bed with my lo. This morning the red streak is completely gone and the toe is still a little sore but not red or swollen at all
. I thought I was definitely going to have to go in, but now its looking like it will be ok. I am going to keep a close eye on it and if the redness and streak comes back I will go right in. If my body can't keep it from coming back I will get it some help, no messing around. I guess I will use this as a reminder to treat my nail with tea tree oil, it is so much better when I do. Its embarrassing how bad it has gotten anyway. It is just hard to take care of myself with the new babe, yk? I put off treating it while pregnant, not sure if tto was ok, and it has gotten bad since then. I have had luck with infections in my mouth and gargling salt water, but wasn't sure if it would help the toe at all. I guess it did and I'm feeling it was quite miraculous, lol. Going to keep my spirits high and repeat the regimen from last night in hopes it will stay better. Thanks again.
