Green puss coming from toe?
The other night I noticed my ingrown toenail had come back - after only two weeks. The area around the toenail was very painful, and I couldn't really touch it. But I went ahead and soaked my foot in warm water for about 15 minutes, then cut the ingrown toenail out, cleaned it, then applied some antibiotic, and put a band-aid on it. I changed the band-aid and cleaned it about 4 times a day. Now, 3 days later, there is a green puss coming out of the corner of my toe. My toe is swollen and very sore now. If I touch it, it's a sharp pain. This is the third time I've had an ingrown toenail. What should I do? I can't really get to a doctor or anything.

Green is not good, i guess you can wait until the blood poisoning sets in, or gangrene does before you go to the doctor. But then you will need hospitalization and or amputation of the affected area. Or, go today and avoid it.

pour rubbing alcohol on it, that will kill all the germs.

Green pus makes me think of Pseudomonas infections, especially when accompanied by a sickly sweet odor. Common in foot infections! Not good. You need a doctor. Failing to spend the money now only means spending more money later for long-term intravenous antibiotics to treat osteomyelitis of the great toe. Sorry, I can't think of a less expensive safe alternative.

If you're brave enough you can cut back some of the skin in the area and soak your foot in hydrogen peroxide about three times a day. You just have to open up the area that has the pus in it so you don't have to cut much skin...just enough to let the HP do it's work. Never use a band-aid on things like this because it traps heat, moisture and bacteria in there and that will slow down healing.

As for the ingrown toe nail, there are many different types caused by different things. Too tight shoes is often a big factor and also cutting your nail too low. I get ingrown nails all the time...but I get mine because I have Psoriasis and basically the skin around my nail beds actually turn to nail.

A good way to cut back on the ingrown nail risk is to soak your feet every night in hot water before you go to bed and use a cuticle stick and push back the skin around the nail...this will also help you notice when an ingrown nail starts. When you don't have to wear shoes use slippers when you can or flip flops when it's warmer. Remember to cut your toe nails straight across and don't cut to the fleshy part...leave a little white over the meat of the nail.
