Welcome and thanks for posting your query to Healthcare Magic.

After reading your query it appears the possibility of "Ingrowing toe nail" in both the great toes.
It is common condition caused by tight fitting or ill fitting shoes which puts pressure on the toe nail. Due to this pressure the nail gets bent inside and there fore starts growing inside producing the condition you are feeling.

For the treatment of this condition you need to visit a surgeon or an experienced dermatologist who can take out the ingrowing part of nail surgically. Once the nail bed of that particular area is taken out then you would be relieved of the problem.
For the doctors in Delhi and the estimate of the procedure would be varying from doctor to doctor. It is better to visit Surgery or dermatology department of Medical College hospital where you would be able to get the treatment at very nominal cost.
Hope these informations will help.

"With good health wishes"
