Pain in the toe nail. No swelling or redness. Infection?

The top corner of my big toenail really hurts EVERYTIME I touch it, and the pain was enough go wake me up in the middle of the night. I m wearing opaque nailpolish right now and currently don t have nail polish remover, so I can t see if there is a change of color underneath the toenail. There does not seem to be any swelling or redness near the toenail though.

Welcome to HCM,

You are probably suffering with ingrown toenail or small abscess.

As examination is necessary for diagnosis, please consult a general Surgeon.

Meanwhile you can take analgesic anti-inflammatory tablet.
