Hello - my teenage daughter had a pedicure a week ago and has symptoms of an infection on her right big toe. She told me the technician dug along my toenail for an ingrown nail . There was visible swelling and redness the first day. A day or so later the redness and swelling remained, as well as a white area. My daughter poked at the white area and puss drained from it. There continues to be redness and puss draining from the area. Does she need to see a doctor?
