Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. We've all been very sick around my house. Finally, I get to feeling better and I crushed my toe yesterday. Talk about SERIOUS pain. I thought I would take time to share this little tip that I came across at about 3 am last night that was seriously such a sweet, sweet tip to find. After HOURS of extreme pressure from the blood under my toenails having nowhere to go, I discovered a way to remove the blood without having to drill into the toenail. I just couldn't get myself to drill into it...and wasn't about to go to the doctor and pay for something I could do myself if I could just get up the nerve to do it. Well, I discovered that you can melt through your toenail by heating up a paperclip. Simply take the paperclip, heat it in a fire until it is glowing red, and then hold it to your toenail. You'll hear a crackling sound and a smell like burnt hair. Keep pushing and finally the blood will release out of the hole. It doesn't hurt as you melt the toenail but does hurt as the heat reaches the toenail bed. However, seconds after the blood will release so you won't even care because you are finally out of agonizing pain. I've had blood under toenails before from dropping items on them--but nothing like this time. Within seconds, my entire toe was a bright blue and the pain was almost unbearable. So this is kind of a strange thing to write about on my blog, but thought it might help someone in the future. So much better than drilling through your toe.
