No you won't fail your medical because of an in-growing toenail. As long as it is not bleeding, pussing or infected you will be fine. I had mine removed and now have no toenail on my left big toe. They didn't bat an eyelid at it on my medical. Good Luck.

Cheers easy!

No, but you might fail the spelling test!

I had such annoying problems with ingrowing toenails that it took 5 minor operations, culminating in having the nail beds burned out with phenol, to solve the problem. And even that didn't work. However the fact that I only have 8 toenails didn't cause me any problems with medicals etc. It will cause you a problem if you leave the problem to fester (literally so).

I had an ingrowing toenail once, went to the doc's and got told to comeback at the appointed time... some months/weeks latter. In the mean time my Sister (who's a nurse) stuck her thumb nail under the toe nail and popped it out. Never had any probs since :) took her all of 3 seconds to sort. Hurt like F**k at the time but pain is just weakness leaving the body :)

I had both done at age 14. took about 4 weeks to heal up and stop being pussy. they cut straight lines across both sides of both nails and now they are fine. I wouldnt want to be doing a lot of training straight afterwards though, but at the speed my recruitment is growing I doubt it will be a problem for you if you did your BARB before the operation!

I did the same with mine, used a nail file to get under the nail and pop it up, then trim the dodgy bit with a scalpel blade. Like you say it hurt like hell but my nail grew back ok and never had any more problems.
DIY surgery its safer than the NHS

mine were growing in all the way down to the cuticle so I wouldn't have been able to have a go at it myself. I had a good day though, it was the day of the solar eclipse and they put my appointment back 10mins so all the staff could watch it, and they brought out X-ray paper to look through.

I had an ingrowing toenail taken out at the old Med Centre in Ripon bks (BFG) by a REME medic :?

Injections either side of my big toe & then he peeled the ferker off.....didn't feel a thing...............light duties for a day or so :D.....................nail grew back & never had any problems since.
